Slide 1: 

ADAPTATIONS OF POLAR ANIMALS

Slide 3: 

WHERE IT LIVESPolar bears live in the Arctic. They do not stay in one place. They travel across the snow and pack ice looking for food POLAR BEAR

Slide 4: 

1. Polar bears are strong swimmers; They can swim for several hours at a time over long distances.

Slide 5: 

2. A thick layer of blubber (fat), up to 11 cm (4.3 in.) thick, keeps the polar bear warm while swimming in cold water). 3. The hair of a polar bear easily shakes free of water and any ice that may form after swimming. 4. A polar bear's nostrils close when under water.

Slide 6: 

5.The polar bear is so strong it can kill an animal with one blow to the head.

PENGUINS

Slide 9: 

To retain heat, penguins may tuck in their flippers close to their bodies, this reduces the surface area available for heat loss.  They also may shiver to generate additional heat

Slide 10: 

1) A fat layer (blubber) improves insulation in cold water. 2)Cold climate penguin species usually have longer feathers and thicker blubber. 3) The dark colored feathers of a penguin's dorsal (back) surface absorb heat.

Slide 11: 

Overlapping densely packed feathers make a surface almost impenetrable to wind or water. Feathers provide waterproofing in water that is critical to penguins survival in water.

Slide 12: 

Penguins must remain active while in water to generate body heat.
