What is blubber?

We had so much fun investigating blubber. We talked about the benefits of blubber for animals from Antarctica and the Arctic.
We put our hands in icy water and it was freezing! After that we put a glove on which represented the skin of the animal, it was still pretty cold. THEN we filled a glove full of fat (lard) and stuck our hand in the glove and then into the icy water...it wasn’t that cold! The thick layer of fat stopped the icy water from reaching our hands which meant it wasn’t that cold at all.
It was disgusting but awesome!
