Are you ready to take the plunge?
If you have already been considering doing the Blubber Glove experiment in your upper elementary classroom, this resource is just the supplement you need to implement it with ease!
The Polar Plunge Challenge
is a lab experiment where students use the scientific method to answer the question: How do polar bears survive in arctic waters? This leads to a hands-on discovery of the arctic animal adaptation of blubber (a thick layer of fat that keeps animals warm in icy waters).
Students are arranged into groups containing 4 students and then assigned specific lab roles. This helps with cooperative learning and classroom management.
This resource has all of the planning materials you will need to bring the Polar Plunge
blubber adaptations lab to life in your classroom!
Here's what you get with the Polar Plunge Challenge Resource:
*teaching tips (true classroom experience - including photos and Do's & Don'ts)
*lab conclusion & extension (further applications to science, math & reading)
*lab report (well-organized & follows the steps of the scientific method)
*grading guidelines (takes the guesswork out of how to grade the lab reports)
*priceless science memories
