In this Problem-Based Project unit, students will research normal temperature ranges and heat stroke ranges for the human body and that of an animal of their choice. Students will then locate and use a sensor that will monitor the temperature of the selected animal in its natural environment. (The choices include the TI Sensor Tag or the Arduino Lily Pad.)They will create a means for attachment and recharging of the device. Students will apply this information to the concept of the elderly monitoring their health with regards to excessive heat. The classroom time will be spent among the One Health Topic purpose, proper use and testing of the chosen sensor and /or programming.
