Energy, Matter, and Organization: Feedback

We continued our learning from the Google Classroom by focusing on the last question in the worksheet that asked students to consider the effect of temperature on metabolism.  We watched the the “squirrel” segment (from 41:40 to 50:00 of the Can We Live Forever? video from NOVA scienceNOW).  Students then updated their answers to question 6 from yesterday’s worksheet.  The the last half of class, students worked in pairs to complete part 1 of the Keeping a Balance worksheet.  They reviewed homeostasis and negative feedback, applying their learning to the scenario of a car adjusting speed in an effort to maintain the set point speed (the speed limit speed of 55 mph).
