Casa 1’s Polar regions study

This month children in Casa 1 are studying Polar Regions! They took part in a Science experiment – using a “blubber glove” (Ziploc bags filled with shortening); they placed their little hand in icy, cold water to feel what the Arctic temperatures would feel like to the Polar Bear and Whale. Look at their inquisitive expressions!
