What educators are saying

Absolutely amazing resources! I use these as quick reviews at the end of lectures or as class openers. These sheets truly help students focus on important concepts as well as apply what they learn
Great resources I just wish they were editable. Often the homework doesn't align completely with my class notes.
Also included in
  1. This bundle is a HUGE collection of resources (ALL homework pages, activity sheets, project descriptions, useful illustrations, literacy resources) for biology teachers. The bundle includes all current and all future resources that I create for biology.Please note that this giant bundle is not incl

These 115 biology homework pages are full of pictures, diagrams, and deeper questions covering everything from the characteristics of life to evolution and ecology. These worksheets cover a standard high school biology curriculum which includes genetics, protein synthesis, and cells.

These are non-editable PDF files. There are student-only PDFs that you can upload to Google Drive and Google Classroom easily (and students can write or type on top of the PDF using Kami.). They have been updated to be Google Drive and Google Classroom friendly! Student pages are in separate PDF files from the teacher answer keys. If bought individually, these pages would cost over $200! You can save a lot of time and money with this bundle!

Why should you purchase this bundle?

- This unique homework sheet bundle will help you teach a cohesive and consistent program all year.

- The homework pages contain consistent imagery throughout to represent molecules like ATP and RNA. You will no longer have to explain to students why ATP on this page looks different from the ATP on this other page from some other source.

- These homework pages were carefully designed with a wealth of images! I have created many of the images myself and other images are licensed from professional designers. These homework pages are not plain worksheets with text questions that can be easily copied from a textbook. Each page is meant to help students to learn biology in a very visual way. Students circle, color, and analyze pictures and diagrams in ways that are far superior to plain text textbook questions.

How many pages will each unit contain?

Each unit will have between 7-18 homework pages, depending on the length of the unit.

What will the format of each page be?

Each page will be unique. Each is designed to roughly cover the material that I would teach in an hour long class period. These are terrific for daily homework assignments because they don’t take too long to complete.

These pages have been carefully designed in Illustrator. I have created a unique set of questions to help students to review material taught in class and think deeper about the material. Many of the pages ask students to highlight or color something, to identify items in a diagram, to match related concepts, or interact with a topic in a new way. Many of the pages ask students to connect more than one concept; they are intended to help students see the bigger picture in each unit. A few pages ask students to use the internet to do a little research.

If you own any of my other resources, don’t worry about repeat pages. These homework pages are truly unique and separate from my activities. These homework pages will truly complement any activities or resources you already have or use in your class.

How do I handle homework?

First of all, I don’t grade it. I learned in my early teaching years that when I grade homework, I am rewarding students who copied off of their one studious friend the period before my class, and I am penalizing students who have limited educational time outside of school. I often give time at the end of the period to work on “homework” pages. Often, I start off the next day’s class with the answer key projected onto some sort of screen (ELMO or projector) so that students can check their answers as they walk in. My students know that they will do better in my class if they do the homework and I care about effort more than being correct.

What if you want to grade homework? Are answer keys included? Are they easy to grade?

Answer keys are included (for almost all of the pages, where it makes sense to have an answer key). I designed these pages to be pretty simple to grade, if you want to do that.

Why is each homework page only one page?

In my time as a teacher, I have noticed that for some reason, homework assignments that have more than one side of a page are just neglected by students. If I hand out a one sided homework page and tell them, here’s your homework, they say, yay, it’s just 1 page! They will often at least start it if not finish it before the end of the day. I really think there is a psychological barrier to starting an assignment with two sides. Call me crazy, but test it out! Try giving my homework assignments and watch your class actually do their homework!

A way to save paper would be to print all of the homework assignments and copy them as a packet. This is great to give students all at once in the beginning of the unit, so they have every page in advance, which works great if they’re absent!

Check out my Biology Doodle Notes for some engaging resources that thoroughly explain Biology concepts in a versatile way!

Also, my click-and-learn Biology Interactive Diagrams are designed to directly complement the Doodle Diagram Notes. You can purchase these interactive click-and-learn diagrams along with the doodle diagram notes for a year by going to the bundle here.
