This TED-Ed video could be used to support students to generate ideas for different writing purposes.

Younger students could write about 'A day in the life of a penguin', while older students could use the information to persuade, inform or explain about penguin habitats and their decline in recent years.

The TED-Ed weblink also provides other lesson ideas and material that can be used to help students to think critically and engage in discussion.
