I composed 20 questions as I watched the classic NOVA video "Life's Greatest Miracle," an excellent program about human development from conception to birth. It includes stunning micro images by famed photographer Lennart Nilsson and narration by John Lithgow. The questions are arranged in chronological order according to when the information is given on the program. It originally aired in 2000, but the science is up-to-date. I use the video and questions to teach human embryology and fetal development to high school students -- much more appealing than a PowerPoint lecture! It’s an engaging and informative program that your students will talk about for days! You can use it as a discussion starter, or as an assessment. A link to the video is provided - purchase the DVD or stream it from PBS for free.
