Homeostasis worksheets can be used as worksheets or in a mini-book style with easy to follow assembly instructions. Both file types include a teacher's key while covering homeostasis basics, control center, receptor, effector, negative and positive feedback. Examples such as blood sugar, body temperature, blood glucose, osmoregulation, blood calcium regulation, labor & delivery and blood clotting are included.
The Mini-book is formatted for easy insertion into Composition Notebooks or Interactive Notebooks of any size.
GREAT FOR ANY STATE!!
Texas Biology TEKS
(10) Science concepts. The student knows that biological systems are composed of multiple levels. The student is expected to:
(A) describe the interactions that occur among systems that perform the functions of regulation, nutrient absorption, reproduction, and defense from injury or illness in animals;
(B) describe the interactions that occur among systems that perform the functions of transport, reproduction, and response in plants; and
(C) analyze the levels of organization in biological systems and relate the levels to each other and to the whole system.
(11) Science concepts. The student knows that biological systems work to achieve and maintain balance. The student is expected to:
(A) describe the role of internal feedback mechanisms in the maintenance of homeostasis;
Next Generation Science Standard
HS-LS1-3. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis. [Clarification Statement: Examples of investigations could include heart rate response to exercise, stomate response to moisture and temperature, and root development in response to water levels.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include the cellular processes involved in the feedback mechanism.]
