In The Hunger Games novel and movie, a futuristic, dystopian society is the setting. In it, a genetically engineered bird escapes control of the government. Using this as a starting point, teenagers examine the realistic possibility of do-it-yourself biology by reading a newspaper article about it. Discussion points and comprehension questions are provided for you, as well as links to the scientific background involved. This is sure to engage your biology class or your engineering class.
Students investigate animal activity inside the soil. In this animals in soil lesson plan, students do this is groups and complete drawings and label what they find.
Students study animal characteristics and identify animals.  In this classification activity students examine the different invertebrates and explain their habitats.  this activity is detailed with many activities that may be split to cover multiple lessons
Students understand that all species have some capacity for communication. Students are exposed to the fact that all species have a capacity for communication. They are enlighten to the fact that communication abilities range from very simple to extremely complex, depending upon the species. Students realize that communication is influenced by a species' genetic makeup, its environment, and the numerous ways by which animals and humans respond to and adapt to their surroundings.
Young scholars read about biology by utilizing educational flash cards. In this fungi lesson, students investigate the biological impact fungus organisms have on plants and water. Young scholars examine images of different fungi types on flash cards which contain names, definitions and characteristics on the back of the card.
Students identify the characteristics of animals that have backbones.  In this investigative lesson students examine the adaptations that animals have.
Students explore multiple perspectives to create a talk show that examines the issues facing chimpanzees. They analyze the gray areas of controversial issues to realize that there can be a wide range of possible positions on a given issue.
Students identify some of the different species of crabs and tell how they adapt themselves to their environment. They discuss the evolution and stages of development of the crabs. They identify the Phylum Arthropoda and the Class Crustacea.
Young scholars investigate the relationship between micronutrients and proper metabolic function. The lesson should serve as an introduction to the subject. The subject of the function includes the study of plants, animals, and humans. They are explored with the use of research and observation.
Students are introduced to the classification system of animals. In groups, they set up an aquarium in which they must maintain throughout the year. They also observe earthworms and how they react to various stimuli and research the characteristics of arthropods. To end the instructional activity, they focus on one phylum of animals and present their information to the class.

Students can gain a greater understanding of human and animal behavior by studying migration.
Students research sibling relationships in the animal world. In this animal science lesson, students read the book, Sisters and Brothers: Sibling Relationships in the Animal World and discuss the sibling relationships. Students choose an animal from the book to answer further questions about the animal and their family lives.
Students use microscopes to study live fish embryos and animated diagrams of cell division on the Internet. They see that scientists rely on technology to enhance the gathering and manipulation of data. They create web pages on cloning.
A great review of the structure and function of carbon-based molecules important to life, especially with relevance to humans. The chemistry behind the combination of polymers and the breakdown of bonds is covered. Valuable content in this slideshow is the collection of diagrams of each functional group.
