Science fun in Ms O'Donovan's class!!!
Over the last two weeks we have been learning about Antarctica and it's wonderful animal life. Penguins in the South Pole have blubber to keep them warm in the freezing water. We did the blubber glove experiment...we put one hand in a "glove" which was made of 2 zip lock bags and lard, the other hand was bare. We put both our hands into a basin of ice water and tested which hand we could keep in the water longer...every child found the blubber glove allowed them to keep their hand in the water longer proving just how important blubber is for the penguins! It was really cool!!!
