In this biochemistry instructional activity, students complete a table by filling in the missing information about different elements. Students draw the Bohr diagram and the Lewis dot diagram for several atoms.
In this proteins worksheet, students review how amino acids are sequenced to determine types of proteins. Students also review how proteins are used by the body. This worksheet has 2 drawing and 24 fill in the blank statements.
In this lipids activity, students review the different types of lipids and how lipids are used by the body. This activity has 3 drawings and 27 fill in the blank statements.
In this nutrient instructional activity, students compare the chemicals that make up living things: vitamins and minerals, lipids, proteins, carbohydrates, and nucleic acids. This instructional activity has 2 drawings and 32 fill in the blank statements.
In this biochemistry worksheet, students draw structures of the given molecules. Students identify the products in the illustrated reaction. Provided with a spectrum, students draw a compound.
After studying the different aspects of atoms and their reactivity, pupils will find this summary PowerPoint useful for review. Some of the slides are informative with labeled diagrams; others give important vocabulary. Teachers may want to take sections of this slide show to use as a supplement to other chemistry lessons.
Students conduct a variety of experiments to explore gel electrophoresis. In this biology instructional activity, explain how this process separate DNA and RNA. They discuss the practical applications of this method.
After studying the different aspects of atoms and their reactivity, students will find this summary PowerPoint useful for review.  Some of the slides are informative with labelled diagrams, others require sentences to be completed with important vocabulary (not included). Teachers may want to take sections of this slide show to use as a supplement to other chemistry lessons.
Students conduct a series of activities to explore the nature of cells. In this biology activity, students observe plant and animal cells under the microscope and compare them. They differentiate osmosis and diffusion.
Learners examine the basics of starch and how it is used in food. In this photosynthesis lesson students experiment with variables that affect starch production in photosynthesis.
Students explore enzymes and what can inhibit and act as a catalyst for them.  In this enzymes lesson students complete experiments on enzyme properties.
During a three-part lesson, learners make a cabbage juice pH indicator and use it to analyze the waste products of yeast after feeding them with sugar. The intent is to demonstrate how living organisms produce carbon dioxide, which is acidic and turns cabbage juice bright pink. The lesson can be used as written, that is, part of an atmosphere unit, or you can use it during physical science when teaching about chemical properties, or even a life science unit when teaching about metabolism and the processing of fuel.
The two-step process of photosynthesis is explained to your high school biologists with a focus on the Calvin cycle. Using adorable animation, the cycle is likened to a tiny, sustainable factory. Even though the enzyme-bird rubisco and the enzyme-cat NADPh work the factory in this cartoon, the chemical reactions are each explained in splendid detail. Have your advanced biology class view this when covering biochemical processes.
A huge slide show provides a review of almost every topic there is to cover in basic chemistry! Your young scientists will be interested to see each illustration and example given. The appearance of the 120 slides varies greatly, most with one or two facts or a helpful calculation to go along with the sub-topic covered in a group of five or six slides. Keep this on hand as a library of slides to use for enhancing the different topics that you will lecture on over the course of time.
Students discover the basic structure of DNA and its function in living organisms by conducting an experiment in which they extract DNA from bananas using a lysis buffer solution.
In this biology learning exercise, learners examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
In this biology worksheet, learners focus upon the passage of ions through the cellular membrane and how they interact in the environment.
In this biology activity, students examine the transport of gases in the circulatory system and how they bond to hemoglobin.
This exam is aimed at assessing college level organic chemists. Ten problems are to be solved and include drawing molecular structures, assessing degrees of saturation, ordering alkenes according to stability, and explaining chemical reactions.  
Biodiversity begins at the molecular level. When biology pupils complete this instructional activity, they will explore a variety of organic compounds that are necessary for life. Six short-answer questions and a chart of the functional groups are to be completed. You will find this most beneficial to add to your biology curriculum at the advanced high-school or college levels.
