Warm Up

Think about your “daily routine

→ What times of the day do you typically get hungry? Eat? Get tired? Sleep? Go to the bathroom?

→ What types of things disrupt this routine?!

Watch this!

Brainstorm (on a blank sheet of paper)

You’ll be turning this in with your lab!

→ What internal physiological systems/ bodily functions are included/ influence Circadian Rhythm?
