Activity notes
B1a 1.1: Keeping a balance
This activity can be used at the end of the lesson as a revision aid for students
showing how temperature can affect the body.
The activity could be undertaken by individual students or as a group or class
activity. The activity also provides an excellent opportunity to dispel common
myths about temperature control, such as the blood vessels moving up through the
skin and hot sweat getting rid of waste heat.
Please note that this activity only covers retaining and losing heat. Homeostasis in
the specification also covers water content and carbon dioxide.
