In context to the ongoing theme for Grade KG, Wonders of Nature, the students were told about the adaptations that living beings have acquired over time to help them survive in extreme conditions. To make the understanding of this concept easier and pragmatic, the students of Grade KG performed the ‘Polar Bear Adaptation Activity ‘.
The children got one of their fingers wrapped in cotton and the other one was kept bare. Alternately they dipped them in ice cold water. The aim behind this activity was to make them realize how a protective layer (Furry coat in case of a Polar Bear) is an adaptation for protection from the cold temperatures.
The children were quite vocal about how they felt the water to be less chilly on the cotton wrapped finger compared to the bare one.
