Thanks for visiting! As a visual, kinesthetic learner myself, I continually structure my classroom bent towards these learning styles. My students are constantly working with their hands, getting up and moving around to different stations for projects or labs. In addition, I use simulations online, and videos, but simulations are EXCELLENT ways to introduce, reinforce, or review topics and units. Besides the information, they are EXTREMELY engaging, interactive and fun!
The interactive for this activity can found at the following website:
Outcome of Mutations Interactive!
Students will explore how mutated DNA or genes affects the phenotype of 8 organisms. The activity I created follows the interactive step by step, and as students progress, asks detailed questions which require written responses. Kids will manipulate certain aspects of the simulation, and videos will sometimes be required to watch.
Thanks again for visiting, and be sure to visit my other interactive simulations covering topics in Biology, Astronomy and Forensics!
