Activity #1 [Music]

Mr. Popper had the idea of training the penguins to perform for an audience to earn money.  They moved the piano down to the cellar. Mrs. Popper played three different pieces of music.  The penguins were trained to perform a certain act when each piece of music was played on the piano.
