What is the Purpose of Blubber: Science Experiment

In this class students will learn about animals that use blubber to stay warm in cold environments and they will do a science experiment that shows what it would be like to have blubber.

Class Experience

Students will learn about polar animals, blubber, and perform a science experiment.
I am offering this class as a fun way to explore polar animals and why they have blubber. I love bringing science to life.
There will be no homework.
I will email out a handout that needs to be printed for class. Materials that students will need for the experiment are: 1 large bowl 1 tray of ice cubes 2 gallon size plastic bags 2 cups of vegetable shortening (crisco) or vasoline cold water
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress will be assessed through discussion of animal adaptations, scientific method and experimental findings.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
