How Animals Stay Warm

How Animals Stay Warm

In this quick activity, learners explore how blubber protects animals from the cold by making a "blubber mitt." Using cooking shortening, two zip-top sandwich bags, and duct tape, learners simulate blubber found on animals like whales and seals and then test it by sticking their "blubber mitt" in snow or ice water.
