One "mini" lab -or shortened activity- to reinforce or introduce concepts to students. I call these activities “mini labs” because they are simple activities that do not take the whole class period. They are also activities that are safe for use in the classroom and do not have to be done in a lab or with any specialty equipment or materials. I often use these demonstrations to lead into new content, that way as we cover material I can refer back to the things that my students have experienced first hand.
This particular listing is for three activities that focus on helping students recognize that multicellular organisms live in and get energy from a variety of environments.
Multicellular organisms meet their needs in different ways.
Plants are producers that store energy.
Mushrooms (fungi) reproduce with spores.
Includes: teacher information, materials list, procedures, helpful tips for facilitating the activities and student handouts/lab sheets
