Winter Preparedness

Today the Stingrays learned how people and animals prepare for cold weather in different ways. People dress warmly and have special winter clothes like hats, boots, and mittens. Animals on the other hand prepare by eating a lot of food and trying to build up their fatty layers so they can keep warm.

We did our own experiment with ice to see if we could feel the cold if we held a bag of butter (fat) between our hands and the cold ice. We were surprised that the extra layer of fat did keep our hands warm!
