Join us in a workshop with some carefully chosen animals that will allow your students to:
  • Compare responses of Australian ectothermic and endothermic organisms to changes in the ambient temperature and explain how these responses assist temperature regulation.
  • ·Analyse information from secondary sources to describe adaptations and responses that have occurred in Australian organisms to assist temperature regulation.
  • Analyse information from secondary sources to compare and explain the differences in urine concentration of terrestrial animals, marine fish and freshwater fish.
  • Use available evidence to explain the relationship between the conservation of water and the production and excretion of concentrated nitrogenous wastes in a range of Australian insects and terrestrial mammals.
