What is "blubber"?

Conclude this science lesson activity with a discussion on what blubber or fat is that arctic animals have and how it works. Relate the crisco used in the activity to blubber. Students should have an understanding of how blubber underneath arctic animals skin keeps them warm in freezing temperatures. Ask if students have any questions or comments to share!
