Icefish Adaptations

What adaptations exist in order for icefish to survive the subfreezing temperatures of the Antarctic Ocean? Middle and high schoolers can find out through watching a related 13-minute video and performing a simple investigation to simulate a unique property of icefish blood. The activity wraps up with learners answering several analysis questions regarding the activity, icefish, and adaptations in general.
