Great lab experiences are the key to a successful biology or life science course. Spice up your class by having your students perform these 15 "must-do" biology labs. These labs cover cell structure, biochemistry, cell division, genetics and DNA, classification and evolution, and so much more!

Students love lab work! If you give them plenty of lab opportunities, their excitement for your course will grow, and retention of complex and difficult concepts will improve. Of all the labs completed by my students, these 15 are my favorites and the ones that I feel are the most beneficial and most effective in illustrating key biological concepts.

Each of my labs includes the following:

  • Title and Introduction
  • Purpose/Problem
  • Safety Precautions
  • Detailed Procedure
  • Student data pages
  • Follow up / Analysis Questions
  • Complete Teacher Answer Key
  • Teacher Preparation Page with tips and strategies
  • Two forms of the lab: An editable word document as well as a pdf version.
