Blubber experience day!

As part of our introduction to our new topic of Non-chronological reports about penguins, we discussed what blubber was and what is use has to marine life.

We put our hand in the ice water to feel how cold it was, before putting our hand in between the zip locked bags full of margarine. The difference was incredible!
