This Urine Jeopardy lesson plan also includes:

Urine can tell us a lot about what is happening in our bodies. In a hands-on activity, scholars administer pH, glucose, ketone, and protein tests to a sample of "urine" solution made from household ingredients. Their results lead them to diagnose a feline in distress. The fifth installment in a unit on biotechnology continues from previous lessons in the series.
