When looking at different Arctic animals we found out that some had ‘blubber’ under their fur to keep them warm! So we did and experiment using ‘lard’ as ‘blubber’ to see how this would feel and to see if the hand with the ‘blubber’ on wouldn’t feel as cold in the icy water!

We got to make and taste some hot chocolate! We had to think about what we had done and then we wrote some instructions!
