Here is a simple and visual way to review the sequence of events in the evolution of the universe. Have students describe and draw key moments in the beginning of the universe. Then have students describe the four key pieces of information to
An editable graphic organizer with a word bank comparing the two types of transport: passive and active. Includes diffusion, osmosis, facilitated diffusion, active transport, endocytosis, and exocytosis. Color coded to help students organize
A colorful organelle table/graphic organizer for all major organelles and cell components that asks students to describe the function, draw a picture and classify as prokaryote or eukaryote. There are also two Venn diagrams asing students to
This is a graphic organizer made to compare proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. It includes the monomer and polymer, tests, functions, and examples of each. It is color coded to easily separate the information. I use the same coloration for the
This is an editable activity to introduce ecology. You can print it as is or add what you like. This has been used with iPads and it could also be used with a computer to paste images but can also be adapted where students draw pictures.
This is a printable PowerPoint presentation containing the cellular respiration equation label activity and a graphic organizer covering aerobic and anaerobic respiration. All items are editable and printable. Also includes a Valentines activity
This is a set of printable labels to make an evolution/geologic timeline for your classroom. This explains how to hang it from your ceiling but you can also print it and attach it to your wall or whatever else you can think of. I use this as a way
Students cut out the squares and put them in the proper category: protein, carbohydrate, and lipid. The yellow squares are the titles. Students can arrange the squares to form a graphic organizer. Great for review of macromolecules. You can edit
A small lab in a PowerPoint Presentation using lima beans and black beans against different color backgrounds to model the process of natural selection. This is a very basic introductory lesson on natural selection and would need to be followed
This document contains a labeled diagram and a blank diagram of the two stages of photosynthesis: light dependent and light independent reactions. It also contains the photosynthesis equation and a label activity to describe the equation.
Here is a PowerPoint I made on evolution by natural selection. I use it after doing the "Rock Pocket Mouse" movie and activity from Biointeractive at HHMI. It covers the principles/concepts of natural selection: population, variation, overproduction
This is an activity where students make a timeline to scale for all of Earth's history. This goes along with the printable classroom timeline on TPT. Students measure printer paper using meter sticks to note where all major eons and eras are on the
This is a colorful geologic timescale from UCMP Berkeley. I copied it from their site and formatted it into a one page PDF for easy printing. It prints beautifully in color for laminating and repeated use. It also looks great in black and white
Here is a project that goes along with my "Hanging Timeline" on TPT. Students make posters on various evolutionary events that can be hung from a classroom timeline. They can do this research on the iPad app NHM Evolution or use the internet.
Students learn about mass extinctions through a video from NOVA, then do a research project learning about how some of their favorite animals might be going extinct today. Document is editable so add or take away what you wish.
This document is editable and provides links for videos for your class to watch on evidence from evolution. The guided lecture/activity focuses on these lines of evidence: fossils (paleontology), embryology, genes, and anatomy.
This is a lengthy film guide for all three parts to the PBS film series Your Inner Fish. It is adapted from Neil Shubin's book by the same name. The guide asks students to synthesize all the evidence for evolution across these four areas:
