This lesson is an online, inquiry-based activity that has students review the concept of homeostasis by doing a WebWalk and applying homeostatic mechanisms to the use of sports drinks. Students are asked to discuss the effects of sports drinks on homeostasis and write an experiment testing an aspect of that effect.
This lesson is appropriate for students who have already been introduced to homeostasis in previous lessons or courses. Teacher notes are included.
