Animal Temperature

Animal Temperature
Author: isee systems, inc.

Explore the laws of thermodynamics with this animal temperature model.  As you experiment, think about animal adaptations and consider the following:

  • What problems do small animals face compared to large animals in hot and cold environments? 
  • What problems do cold-blooded (poiklothermic) animals face compared to warm-blooded (homeothermic) animals?
  • What is it that insulation really does for animals?

The story behind this model is explained in a chapter of Tracing Connections
