Description

These activities are designed to give students a fun and active way to experience homeostasis. This resource has two different homeostasis activities. Each activity is described in detail and is accompanied by a student worksheet. The activities require very little preparation from the teacher, and the students love getting out of their seats and moving around. Teachers can space these activities out over two days or give both activities in one block period class. Each activity promotes student reflection and class discussion. These are great activities where students have fun while learning more about the content.

The materials needed for the activities are only one timer for the teacher, graph paper for students, and space to move around. The first activity lasts 20+ minutes. The second activity lasts 45+ minutes.

This resource can also be purchased at a discount as part of the Homeostasis Package.

What teachers are saying about this resource:

“I've used this a few times now and it's been successful each time. It's a fairly quick and fun lab that I use pretty early on. It's also a great intro into teaching students to find their pulse which helps for labs I use later on. Great resource!”

“Love doing this in class, the kids had so much fun!”

“Kids had a deeper understanding of the content because of this activity”

"It is awesome to have a well-thought worksheet to have students really analyze what they experienced."
