This week we spent time learning and talking about polar/arctic habitats and the animals that live there. We explored the different ways animals adapt to these cold environments. Blubber was our favorite thing to talk about! On Friday, we were able to feel what it would be like to b a polar bear or penguin with a “layer of blubber” around us. We stuck our hands in icy water to feel how cold it was on our skin, then we put our hands in a “blubber glove” and felt how the blubber kept the cold from reaching our skin. We had a lot of fun with this!
