Nature of Biology
Learners study biology and the different life processes. In this exploratory lesson students identify the parts of a microscope and the tools used in research and technology.
Sibling Relationships in the Animal World
Young scholars 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. Young scholars choose an animal from the book to answer further questions about the animal and their family lives.
Biology: New Trials & Findings
High schoolers use background knowledge to summarize articles about skin cancer research and present them to the class and place their studies along a clinical study timeline. They are introduced to clincal trails and to various aspects of the biology of skin, cancer and the relationship between UV radiation and skin cancer.
In this population worksheet, students will determine if 12 statements about demographic trends, including the effects of birth and death rates on populations, are true or not. Then kids will match 6 population growth vocabulary words with the correct statements. Finally students will fill in the blank of 6 statements relating to the movement of human populations from one area to another.
Survival: The Human Body in Extreme Environments
Students name and describe the major systems that work together as a unity to monitor and regulate the human body as it goes about its business of securing the essential requirements for life. They identify specific human features and/or behaviors that enable people to monitor and maintain a healthy balance in their bodies.
Printing a Human Kidney
Biotechnology has allowed us to engineer transplantable bladders and other organs successfully. The hope is to someday be able to engineer kidneys, and so save many lives. Dr. Anthony Atala, who specializes in regenerative medicine, shares in this film about his research. Inspire young bioengineers to pursue noble tasks with this talk.
Genetics: the Study of Inherited Traits
Pupils explain how genes determine our individual traits. In this biology lesson, students use Mendelian genetics to predict phenotype and genotype. They compare and contrast the role of DNA and RNA.
Human Biology Exam 1
For this word search worksheet, students locate 75 words related to human biology. Words include bone, tissue, tendon, and histology.
Human Biology Crossword Puzzle
In this online interactive human biology crossword puzzle worksheet, students use the 9 clues to find the appropriate answers to complete the word puzzle.
Mapping the Human Genome
Students study DNA and how it was discovered. In this biology lesson students see the effects of mapping the human genome would have.
Mountain Lions in Arizona Lesson 5: Humans and Lions - Encounters in Nature
Fledgling felinologists are taught how to recognize when a mountain lion is preparing to attack. They identify proper actions to provide the greatest chance of survival if they are attacked. Learners play a matching card game in which they must match the mountain lion's behavior with the relative risk and the recommended human action. This is a cute activity that can teach about mountain lion behavior.
Geography: Where on Earth Are the Postage Stamp Countries?
Seventh graders research the six European "postage stamp" (small) countries and research interesting facts about them. In groups, they are assigned to one of the six countries of Andorra, Liechtenstein, Malta, Monaco, San Marino, or Vatican City. On poster board, 7th graders create a postage stamp for their country.
Human Embryo Development and Birth Defects
Open this lesson with a discussion on birth defects. Break the class into groups to visit a website and learn about what happens at each stage of human embryo and fetal development. Assign each group a particular birth defect to research and create a slide show to present to the rest of the class. Note that in Step three of the lesson plan, the PowerPoint that you are supposed to show is not included. There are, however, a student worksheet and group presentation grading rubric.
Classroom Mark-Recapture with Crickets
High schoolers estimate crickets population using mark-recapture technique. In this biology lesson, students use Lincoln-Petersen model to calculate population size. They also identify the different parts of the crickets.
Catering Middle-School Science: Monomers, Polymers, and Macromolecules
Students investigate foods. In this biology lesson plan, students will conduct testing on different types of foods as they learn about different molecules that make them up. Students will also learn about the shapes of the molecules.
Flora and Fauna of the Hill Neighborhood
Learners compare and contrast the characteristics of plants and animals. In this ecology lesson plan, students observe the outdoors and describe the relationship among different living things. They relate plant diversity with animal diversity.
Water Will, Water Way
Students test tap water for hardness and mineral content. In this environmental science lesson, students identify the different stages of the water cycle. They classify plant and animals according to the rules of taxonomy.
Students continue their examination of the existence of life on Earth. In groups, they determine the role of the water cycle and other biogeochemical cycles play in keeping balance on Earth. They participate in experiments to discover how moisture gets in and out of the air. To end the lesson, they compare and contrast the relationships between biotic-biotic, biotic-abiotic, and abiotic-abiotic interrelationships.
Students study water resources that are important to the people of North American and Africa. They use satellite images and data to explore how human actions can degrade, improve, or maintain water resources. They analyze and interpret graphic data to make recommendations for improving future use of these resources.
The Mind-Body Connection
Second graders learn about the human body. In this biology lesson plan, 2nd graders will begin with the basics of understanding charts and graphs and progress into units that cover the body systems, and mental and emotional health. Students will learn how their daily choices effect their bodies.
