The children in Ms. Amy’s and Ms. Katie’s classes at Atchison County Head Start had the chance to explore our earth’s arctic animals. Animals that live in the Arctic have adapted to living in one of the harshest climates on the planet. The extremely cold weather makes survival a challenge. One of the questions the children had was how do arctic animals stay warm? With the help of blubber, of course! Using homemade blubber, gloves, and ice/water the children were able to experience what the animals feel.
