Class One took part in a ‘blubber glove’ experiment to answe

Class One took part in a ‘blubber glove’ experiment to answer the question ‘how do Arctic animals keep warm?’. We conducted our test using lard as a ‘blubber substitute’. The children put one hand inside the glove with ‘blubber’ into the icy water and the other in a glove without to test the difference in temperature! The children measured that the inside of the glove suspended in icy water was 4 degrees and that the inside of the glove protected by the lard was 16 degrees!
They recorded their findings and came to a conclusion. They then compared this to their original hypothesis. Super work! 🐧🐧🐧
