This is a short quiz on the scientific method that includes variables (independent, dependent and control variables). It covers the steps of the scientific method and key vocabulary related to the scientific process.
This quiz covers the six characteristics of life (DNA, cells, energy, reproduction, growth and development and responding to change ) and 4 basic needs of life (air, water, habitat, food). Some terms that are assessed are homeostasis, metabolism,
Students match images and examples to one of the six kingdoms of life. This can be used as a bell ringer, exit ticket, review or mini-quiz! It includes protists, archaea, eubacteria, fungi, animals and plants.
In this activity, students predict what will happen when yeast is placed in a bag with salt water and sugar water. They measure the bubbles produced and the height of the bag as quantitative observations and answer follow up questions. Then, they
Included are 2 graphic organizers for students to fill in descriptions of the steps of the scientific method. One is a foldable that can be cut and glued into their notebooks. The other is a table that can be filled out as review.
This graphic organizer can help students study the sub-units, functions and examples of proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids. They can fill in the information as they learn about each molecule!
Students match organelles to their functions in a clear and organized graphic organizer. Includes ribosomes, ER, nucleus, nucleolus, mitochondria, chloroplast, cell membrane, lysosome, vacuole and golgi body.
Students predict what is inside a bag without looking inside. They use various senses to determine what is inside and present their predictions. This is a fun way to introduce the scientific method and how prior knowledge and observations help you
This template can be used for students to create an imaginary organism that falls into one of the kingdoms of life (fungi, eubacteria, protist, archaea, plant or animal) or for students to use a real organism and create an "organism" media page for
This set of graphic organizers contains 32 pages of graphic organizers to help students learn complex life science/biology concepts. They are not filled out with definitions or concepts, although they contain prompts to help organization. Included
Students choose a genetic disorder to research and create a pamphlet to summarize how it is passed down, the biological mechanism, symptoms, screening and treatment. This project includes instructions, a rubric for grading and a page for
It is essential that students know the differences between qualitative and quantitative observations in a science classroom, especially when introducing the scientific method. These worksheets help students distinguish between qualitative and
In this activity, students practice the steps of the scientific method by testing their reaction times with a dropped ruler. Students read background information, ask a question and create a hypothesis. Then, they test each other and gather data.
In this assignment, students fill out a graphic organizer with illustrations and descriptions that show how one organism of their choice gets and uses the 4 basic needs of life (water, air, habitat and food). This includes a simple instruction
This lab activity includes a teacher lesson plan, student worksheet, lab participation rubric and teacher instructions. After introducing students to osmosis, hypertonic, hypotonic and diffusion concepts, students make a hypothesis about what they
This is an ice breaker that can be used in the beginning of the year so students can get to know each other. Students are given statements (all related to science) and they have to find a student who matches the statement. The other student writes
