Students identify the different parts and functions of the cardiovascular system. In this forensics lesson plan, students collect and analyze evidence on a fictional crime. They describe different causes of cardiac arrest.
Students explain chemosynthesis and photosynthesis using candy. In this chemosynthesis lesson plan, students work cooperatively to create a visual explanation of the chemical equations of photosynthesis and chemosynthesis.
Students compare their prior knowledge about the relationship between sunlight and cancer with new findings. They research how different vitamins and minerals affect the human body.
Students reflect on the lives of older people they know, then research and debate the key issues surrounding scientific experimentation in anti-aging. They write a short story that reflects their own philosophical beliefs on aging and longevity.
Students conduct an experiment that is similar to radiocarbon dating. They describe the process of carbon-14 dating and explain how it was applied to the Shroud of Turin. They analyze the validity and reliability of scientific studies.
Young scholars divide substances into categories: made of chemicals/not made of chemicals, synthetic/naturally occurring, and toxic/nontoxic. They observe a mystery chemical and determine what precautions they need to take when handling an unknown substance.
Students work together to design an experiment. They discover the origin of a family artifact. They analyze the data and discuss the results. They determine if the experiment is the best way to find out this type of information.
Students design, implement, and report a scientific research project using the scientific method. They explain the experiment and its findings through poster, essay , or other presentation method.
High schoolers identity the components of electron transport system through role play. They explain the role of intermediate energy carriers to the production of ATP molecules. They describe the relationship of electron transport system to Krebs Cycle and glycolysis as it relates to cellular respiration. They analyze and present their understanding of cellular respiration.
Students research measurements of the moon and Earth as well as the distance between the two in order to create scale models of the Earth-moon system. With a marble to be used as the moon, they must determine how large to make Earth out of modeling clay.
In this evidence of evolution worksheet, 10th graders review notes given by referring to the Nelson Biology text, chapter 11/13. Students read the notes and the specified pages in the text.
This is not they typical set of teacher instructions. It is an organized chart of the important organic compounds. For each, the involved elements, the name of the building block monomers, the names of polymers, extra information, and a class demonstration is listed. Use this as a guide for preparing your lecture and demonstrations when introducing biology or biochemistry pupils to the biologically significant materials. You could even have your class do the demonstrations as a lab activity.
Two laboratory problems are put forth for chemistry high schoolers. They are to plan and carry out an experiment that will answer each of the questions. The first asks them to investigate a relationship between the surface area of a potato and decomposition rate of hydrogen peroxide. The second requires that they determine the equilibrium constant for a reaction involving urea. All of these National Chemistry Olympiad exams are tremendous resources to use in your classroom as lab investigations or practical exams.
Students perform tests for the presence of certain macromolecules. In this health and biology lesson, students rotate in groups to three lab stations and perform tests for proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates found in familiar foods.
Students explain the Chatelier's Principle. In this pH instructional activity, students identify factors that resist changes in pH of the ocean and why the ocean is becoming more acidic.
Students explain the concept of gene sequence analysis. In this gene lesson plan, students draw inferences about phylogenetic similarities of different organisms.
Cell membranes and the factors that affect its integrity are studied, with Beet tissue used as the model. A poster to display findings of the permeability of the membranes would clarify understanding and also allow a layer of language arts preparation. Multiple online resources are linked to, and ideas suggested for extension activities.
Students explore the six simple machines that are the basis for all mechanical devices. In this physics lesson, students choose one simple machine to research and then find a complex machine it is apart of. Students examine Leonardo da Vinci's inventions and point out how he incorporated simple machines in his designs.
In this stoichiometry activity, students calculate molar masses, empirical and molecular formulas to solve 105 problems and short answer questions.
Looking at evolution in detail, this thorough instructional activity has complex questions requiring details and explanations of natural selection and diversity. Various examples of biological characteristics are available, and students choose the relevant theories they support from the multiple choice options. The second half of the instructional activity gives examples of fossils, prompting learners to relate the evidence to theories regarding common ancestors, acquired characteristic, and evolutionary relationships.
