This week we have discussed everything Arctic! So today, Friday, we did a science experiment and investigation. We asked the questions... How does blubber help animals stay warm, how would it feel if we had blubber, what does blubber feel like? So in order to answer these questions we did some science investigations! First, I got a bowl, ice, graduated cylinder of water, 2 sets of rubber gloves, and last crisco!
First, I had each student dip one hand in the ice water to test out how cold it felt on our bare hands.
*note the student cannot submerge the glove fully into the water. The part on the wrist must stay out of the water so water doesn't go into the inside of the glove.
