We also got to talk about blubber and how animals like penguins, walruses, seals and whales use blubber to help insulate their bodies from the cold.
Next we got to see a bull snake. He hibernates to survive winter temperatures. We learned that snakes are not poisonous, but actually venomous. This is because snakes inject you with venom. If something is poisonous, it is because you ingest it or come in contact with it.
We saw a polar bear skull. It was huge! We learned that polar bears don't eat penguins. This is because polar bears live in the North Pole and penguins live in the South Pole. We saw some polar bear fur and learned that their skin is actually black and its fur is more clear than white.
Lastly we got to view a migrating bird - the ringed turtle dove. We remembered that some birds migrate, but so do whales and butterflies.
Mrs. W and I were very impressed with the students' polite manners during a long 45 minute session of sitting. They asked some deep thinking questions and answered questions showing a high level of understanding.
