Description:

In this open-ended investigation students determine how honeybees heat their larvae (brood) when it’s cold and how they cool the brood when it’s hot. In the process, students will discover the physical principals that make thermoregulation possible. Required materials and step-by-step instructional guidelines are included in a pdf guide. Teachers and students may extend upon this activity by using their “honeybee” investigations to design open-ended experiments to determine ways to heat and cool things through direct contact (conduction), through the movement of air or water (convection), and by evaporation.
