Read the text aloud.
Penguins are birds that spend most of their lives in the ocean. They come on land to build nests and raise their young. Penguins cannot fly. They stand upright on land and walk with a waddle because they have short legs and tall, bullet-shaped bodies.
Penguins once flew, but millions of years ago, they stopped flying and began to spend most of their time in the water. Over time, their wings started to take the shape of flippers. This helped make penguins fast and graceful swimmers.
Penguins are covered with short, thick feathers. Their back, head, and wing feathers are black or bluish-gray, but their undersides are white. Penguins eat seafood such as fish, crabs, and shrimp. All penguins in the wild live in the cold waters south of the equator.
