The Brilliance of Bioluminescence
Illuminate the darkest corners of your marine biology or life science class with this feature about bioluminescence. Viewers see that luciferase and luciferin combine in a cool, light-producing reaction. This adaptation helps glowing organisms to attract prey or mates.

High schoolers investigate the concept of bioluminescence. They use dinoflagellates in a lab situation to study photosynthesis. They conduct research into the concept using a variety of resources. Also the class is taken on a field trip to compare two different ecological areas.

Ninth graders investigate the concept of bioluminescent. They break down the word phonetically for correct pronunciation. This is done as a warm up for learning. Then students create a list of the creatures from prior knowledge and conduct further research to clarify any misconceptions.

Bioluminescence 2009: Living Light on the Deep Sea Floor Expedition - Now You See Me, Now You Don't
Students examine bioluminescence and camouflage of deep sea creatures. In this deep sea creatures lesson, students investigate the visible and near-visible light spectrum. They work in small groups to complete a light, color, and camouflage activity using the given worksheet.

Observation and Stimulation of bioluminescence and chemiluminescence
Students are introduced to chemical reactions, reaction rates, chemiluminescence, fluorescence and bioluminescence. They use glow sticks are used to demonstrate the effect of temperature on the rates of chemical reactions. Pupils recall that glowsticks contain two chemicals that are mixed when the glass tube on the inside is broken.

A Bioluminescent Gallery
Students examine the different types of luminescence in deep sea organisms. In this bioluminescence instructional activity, students investigate how color and light aide deep ocean organisms by describing the characteristics of the habitat and completing a study guide.

Light in the Dark: A Study on Bioluminescence
Students explore bioluminescence in sea organisms. They participate in a glow stick activity that will allow them to be bioluminescent creatures in the deep sea and finally, design their own midwater/deep sea fish that uses bioluminescence.

Fish Aren't Afraid of the Dark!
Young scholars explore the concept of bioluminescence. They hypothesize what it might be like in the deep ocean and describe what it's like to see in the dark. Students brainstorm how marine animals might cope in the dark ocean and view pictures of bioluminescent animals.

Creatures That Glow In The Night
Students investigate the different bioluminescent organisms. They use microscopes in order to make observations and draw what is seen. Students demonstrate they have studies the differences between the process of photosynthesis and bioluminescence.

Dinoflagallates of Bioluminescent Bay
Fifth graders research dinoflagallates of the Bioluminescent Bay. They research the Internet for pictures of the Bio Bay and discuss the difference between ecosystems and ecoregions. They research a marine ecoregion and create a poster.
