Description In this activity, students determine the effects of temperature on physiological and behavioral changes in fish. Students design an experiment to measure the effects of changing water temperature on fish respiration and then an experiment examining the relationship between water temperature and another approved physiological or behavioral variable. In addition, students create a poster demonstration communicating the results and conduct an experiment demonstrating proper maintenance and care of live animals.
