Interactive video lesson plan for: Why Don't Penguins' Feet Freeze?

Activity overview:

How do they do it? Penguins standing on ice, not only for days, but their whole lives! And their feet don’t hurt like ours would. It has something to do with blood and an amazing twist that penguins have developed.
