Homeostasis Lab


The purpose of conducting this lab was to find the things that need to stay the same for the body to stay in Homeostasis.  Homeostasis is the state that the body is in internally to stay stable and well.  We had one member of our lab group do jumping jacks for 6 minutes.  First, we recorded her skin color, perspiration level, body temperature, breathing rate, heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation of her before the jumping jacks.  After we had her start jumping and every two minutes we would have her stop and then we would test the above on her.  After she finished her jumping, we recored the above after one minute of rest.  We concluded that only her body color and breathing rate stayed the same.  In the pictures we are testing Juliana’s heart rate and blood pressure after going her 6 minutes of jumping jacks.                                                                                               Juliana’s perspiration level, body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation levels went higher than when she was just sitting before the lab started.  2015-09-22 12.58.282015-09-22 12.54.25

  1. Dear Sofia,

    You clearly explained the procedures you followed to complete your lab and included some of your own images. It would be helpful to include your data table or graphs so that your reader can get a sense of your results. Also, make sure to hyperlink your sources and caption your images. What did you discover through your results?

    Looking forward to future Investigations posts!
