Description:

The purpose of this lab activity for middle school students is to relate animal behavior to human behavior and to develop and test a hypothesis that investigates the relationship between the physical environment in a classroom and concentration and memory. This activity should follow a unit on animal behavior, as a way to connect animal and human behavior. Upon completion of this activity, students will be able to: show an understanding of the relationship between animal and human behaviors and the stimuli that affect them and develop and conduct an experiment exploring the relationship between the physical environment in a classroom and student concentration. This teaching resource was developed by a K-12 science teacher in the American Physiological Society’s 2007 Frontiers in Physiology Program.
