In 1 Red this week we have been looking at different Arctic animals and how they keep warm; their prey and predators; where they live and what they eat.  The children all thought that living in the Arctic would be very cold for the animals, especially the ones in the icy sea.  We decided to do an experiment to see if having blubber would make a difference to how we feel the cold.  We dipped our hands in icy water brrrrrrr then created a ‘Blubber Glove’ to see if our hand was warmer.  IT WAS! We found out that blubber is a good insulator.
