In this outdoor winter activity, learners search for and create hibernation sites that will protect gelatin "animals" from freezing. Learners come to understand that hibernating animals need to take care in selecting a sleeping spot that will provide protection from the winter cold. Less

In this outdoor activity/game, learners use thermometers to simulate how lizards survive in habitats with extreme temperatures. Learners are challenged to keep their thermometer-lizard "alive" by keeping its temperature within a five-degree safe range. While regulating their pretend lizards' temperatures, learners must move the lizards through a course of sun and shade, trying to reach the finish first. Through the game and followup discussion, learners come to understand different ways that exotherms, or "cold-blooded" animals, regulate their body temperatures and how they differ from endotherms, or "warm-blooded" animals, such as humans. Activity must be done on a warm, sunny day in a site with areas of deep shade, bright sun, and broken or partial shade. Less

In this experiment, learners examine the way oil affects bird feathers and test different cleanup methods to find out which works best. Learners answer questions throughout the investigation, reflecting on how birds are affected by oil spills and the best way to rescue birds after a spill. Less

This activity was designed for blind learners, but all types of learners can use it to learn how the body self-regulates. This lesson plan teaches students how the human body self-regulates to maintain a stable internal environment despite changes in the external environment -- a process called homeostasis. Most of the activities detailed in this lesson plan can be done with visually impaired students if teachers adapt them using Resources for Teaching and Adapting Lessons for Students with Visual Impairments.

In this activity about daily rhythms (on page 17 of the PDF), learners will explore circadian patterns in humans, animals and plants. They will observe that some behaviors and functions of living organisms vary predictably every 24 hours and many regular functions are governed by internal "clocks," which run independently but are cued or reset by the environment. Groups of learners can conduct one of four (or more) body clock investigations: body temperature, animal behavior, bean leaf, and alertness/heart rate. Materials required for each group will vary, depending on the investigation(s) being conducted. This lesson guide includes background information, setup and management tips, extensions and a handout.

In this outdoor activity, learners measure familiar objects in nature to practice working with the metric system. The goal is for learners to develop their "metric senses" by measuring and estimating in metric units the mass, length, temperature, and volume of familiar objects. Can be adapted into an indoor activity on a rainy day. Less
