Description:

In this activity (1st on the page), learners explore circadian rhythms by keeping track of their body temperature. Learners measure their temperature using a standard oral thermometer every two hours during the day. Learners chart their body temperature on a graph and look for patterns. Learners can also combine this activity with a related activity on reaction time to examine if there is a correlation between reaction speed with warmer body temperatures.
