Students create flip books (4 half sheets of paper, each different colors, folded so that a flip book with 8 tabs is created. See matching youtube video for directions.
Includes a 10 question class review and guided practice at the end.
Students will visit different "mini-lab" stations to perform simple 3-5 minute experiments to test various properties of water. Properties of water tested include: polarity, adhesion, cohesion, surface tension, capillary action, and solubility.
Students will test how pH and temperature affect enzymes. Students will use potato, which contains the enzyme catalase, hydrogen peroxide, acid solution (vinegar), base solution (household cleaner), an ice bath, and a hot water bath to test
Part of the mitosis/meiosis unit. Students are introduced to what karyotypes are and what they are used for. Special attention is paid to nondisjunction and the chromosomal disorders it creates. Students should be warned about the mature subject
Part of the Evolution unit. Students are introduced to the concepts of biogenesis, endosymbiosis, and possible origins of life on the planet.
The presentation is divided into three sections:
1. Biogenesis vs. Spontaneous generation- students will
Students use directions and templates to create large scale models (approx. 3' high) of a DNA replication fork. Students use vocabulary terms, enzymes, and free nucleotides to create the replication fork. Directions include checks for understanding,
Based on the "What Foods Contain..." lab. Students use small samples of food substances and an indicator to determine which food substances contain simple sugars and/or complex carbohydrates.
As a part of teacher prep, I would blend together
This activity is an adapted version of a larger timeline project. It has been formatted to fit into one class period. Students will use information provided to create a relative timeline of the history of the earth. Students will work in teams of
Part of an Evolution unit in Biology. The lab emphasizes adaptations and variations in populations per Darwin's Theory of Natural Selection.
Students will work with a partner to identify features which make the beetle better adapted to it's
Part of the "What Foods Contain..." Lab. Students will use liquified samples of food and indicators to determine what foods contain lipids and protein.
Teacher prep requires liquefaction of food substances (food coloring and gelatin can be used to
Powerpoint notes for a Biochemistry unit. The notes introduces students to the idea of monomers/polymers, dehydration synthesis/hydrolysis, and types of organic compounds. The notes also include a description of carbohydrates make-up ,functions, and
This table includes enough information for each type of atom that students should be able to predict the missing information. Students will use the periodic table and basic chemistry notes from the teacher to complete this table with the following
