Blubber Experiment

16th Mar 2023

Miss O'Neill taught us how whales, seals and certain penguins have a layer of blubber to help them survive the freezing temperatures of their climate. The experiment was a fun and we had a go at finding the difference between the water at 0.7 degrees with our bare hand and then the same experience with a layer of blubber protecting our hand... the difference was brrrrrrrrrilliant! Now we know why blubber is so important for creatures in the cold!
