How Do Pinnipeds Stay Warm?

Learners experiment to determine ways different types of insulation materials work. In this animal adaptation lesson, they make hand coverings from plastic bags, shortening, feathers, and wool. They observe effects of these insulating materials by placing their hands into plastic bag mitts surrounded by each material. The class will then put their hands into ice water to test it out!
