The Cold Shoulder
Investigate structural features, behavioural responses and physiological mechanisms that help animals maintain a relatively constant internal environment. Using the stimulus-response model, students explore the regulation of temperature, utilisation of water, production of nitrogenous waste, as well as the concentration of salts and gases.
Curriculum Links Biological Science: Unit 4 (ATAR)
Students examine why humans are classified as ‘Primates’ and the evolutionary trends within this order. Comparative anatomy, physiology and behaviour are used to identify the similarities and differences between the Hominidae (Great Ape) family. We also explore some traits of early hominins.
