How Do Pinnipeds Stay Warm?

Learners experiment to determine ways different types of insulation materials work. In this animal adaptation lesson plan, 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!

Lesson Planet is a great source for lesson plans that have been used successfully by other teachers. I've adopted and adapted so many of the lessons found through to suit the needs of my classes for the past two years, and have saved so much time not having to re-invent the wheel. Thanks to Lesson Planet, I've been able to evolve within this ever-evolving profession!
