How Do Animals Survive in the Cold?
In Science, we were looking at how animals adapt for winter. We then started thinking about how some animals can survive in cold weather all year round. We did a science experiment to see how fat layers in some animals such as polar bears lets them survive in extremely cold weather!
We had to dip our hands in very cold water and we could only leave our fingers in for a second as it was too cold! We then put our hands into a plastic bag which had a layer or fat around the outside. We then dipped our hands into the water inside the bags and we found that we could leave our hands in for much longer as the fat layer was keeping us warm!
