Educate and entertain at the same time! When presenting upcoming biologists with homeostasis in animals, use this colorful and information-packed presentation. Animals make humorous comments on the information provided. It details the processes of water balance and nitrogen waste removal with diagrams, photos, and comprehensive notes.
Don't expect much from this presentation. It contains five slides in addition to the title. The first describes homeostasis, the second states that it operates at all levels and lists the biological hierarchy, the third gives three examples: body temperature, water balance, and blood chemistry. The fourth slide lists how a body cools down and the fifth lists how a body warms up. If all you want is phrases to support your lecture, you might find this set of slides useful.
Have your young biologists consider body organization and homeostasis by answering the thirteen questions on this worksheet. Unfortunately, not all biology textbooks cover these two topics within the same chapter, so you may not be able to use this as a reading guide. You most likely teach homeostasis when you teach body organization, making this resource useful as a note-taking guide or review.
