Scientific Enquiry in P2

3rd Mar 2019

This week we investigated, 'How do ducks stay warm?'. We found out that ducks have a special gland known as a 'preening' gland, which allows them to spread oil over their feathers. We had to cover one feather with water and the other with oil. We found out that the oil prevented the water from soaking into the paper.
