For a class of 32 working in groups of 4. Maintaining homeostasis is one of the most important functions that animals perform for their own survival. This 4-part lesson tackles homeostasis in animals as students first examine their own heart rate, then design their own experiment to test external stimuli on Daphnia's cardiovascular system. Kit materials include access to digital resources.

For a class of 32 working in groups of 4. Maintaining homeostasis is one of the most important functions that animals perform for their own survival. While animals maintain some processes through behavioral changes, many are handled through physiological changes such as changing heart rate, sweating, or muscle contractions. This 4-part lesson tackles homeostasis in animals. Students first examine their own heart rate, then design their own experiment to test external stimuli on Daphnia's cardiovascular system.

The activities in this kit address the following Next Generation Science Standards*:

  • HS-LS1-3. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis.

Kit materials include a 1-year single teacher subscription to access digital resources: reproducible teacher's manual and student guide, digital answer sheets, editable assessment questions, and graphics that can be used with whiteboard projectors.

Note: Kit ships with perishable materials included, for immediate use.
