Homeostasis - This 25 slide Senior Biology PowerPoint Lesson package looks at maintaining Homeostasis in the body, the Homeostatic control systems, Negative Feedback, Positive Feedback and specifically Thermoregulation and waste/toxin balance. It is geared towards a senior level biology and/or an AP biology classroom. The PowerPoint contains many diagrams, explanations and videos. It includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the Power Point), 2 embedded videos and a student lesson handout as a word document which follows the PowerPoint.
Included in the lesson package is:
- The teacher version of the PowerPoint
- The student version of the PowerPoint
- 2 videos embedded into the PowerPoint
- Student lesson handout
In order, the lesson covers:
- Homeostatic control systems
- Negative Feedback
- Positive Feedback
- Waste and Toxin balance
The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
