Biology: Sun, Skin and Cancer
Students identify basic components of skin on a cross sectional diagram. They provide a basic description of cancer in terms of cell biology. Students explore the ABCD of skin cancer/mole evaluation and perform their own evaluation of "test moles." They name the three kinds of skin cancer and describe where in the skin they originate.
Make a prototype of a game based on cell biology. Researching game design and working in groups to create a game will activate knowledge of cell biology. The review task will help learners learning as they test out the games and their conclusion skills as they review and rate.
Ninth graders use online tutorials, class discussion, presentations and scientific articles to explore types of cells along with cell structure, function and behavior. They explore ethical questions related to cells and disease.
Students conduct a series of activities to explore the nature of cells. In this biology instructional activity, students observe plant and animal cells under the microscope and compare them. They differentiate osmosis and diffusion.
New! Magnifying and Observing Cells
Though it isn't a novel activity to prepare onion cell and Elodea plant cell slides as examples of cells in a microbiology unit, this resource will leave you thoroughly prepared. As pupils examine the slides that they prepare, they draw what they see. The lesson is part of a larger comprehensive unit on microbes that you will definitely want to consider.
The Debate Over Stem Cell Research
Learners complete a variety of activities as they examine the ethical issues behind stem cell research and cloning. They make their own ethical decisions on both subjects.
The Gift of Life - Day 2: "Cell & Organelle Time to Tell" and "World in Color" (Chapters 2-4)
Students complete a cell biology lesson and a color lesson based on The Giver. In this biology and reading comprehension lesson set, students examine cells using microscopes. They look at the organelles and listen to How Much is a Million by David M. Schwartz to visualize the large number of cells. They watch a YouTube video of The Wizard of Oz before completing a color association activity. They read and respond to two chapters in The Giver.
Cell Cycle, Mitosis and Meiosis
Seventh graders describe the processes involved in mitosis and meiosis. For this life science lesson, 7th graders create chromosome models using strings and beads. They play a jeopardy team game at the end of the unit to review concepts learned.
All's Well for Stem Cells
By exploring the latest research on cell and tissue renewal your young scientists can understand the various internal body parts and systems examined in these studies.
Investigating Factors That Affect Cell Membrane Permeability
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.
Identify the different cell organelles in prokaryotes. Modelling the cells using Jell-o and candies will be a fun way to experience the cell in a hands-on way (different to using play-doh!). They observe cells under a microscope and draw what they see.
Variety Is the Spice of Cellular Life
Do you need to review animal cell structure? Investigate the ways in which different types of cells interact in a common human reflex. Your young scholars can explore the functions of stem cells, consider various illnesses and assess stem cells potential to aid in cures. This instructional activity uses resources from a textbook along with research on the internet and index cards (not included) as a source of information.
New! Animal Cell Construction
Using a piece of pink paper as the cytoplasm of an animal cell, beginning biologists color and cut out organelles on the handout to glue onto their cell models. Afterward, they create a list of the structures and describe the function of each.
Students investigate the function and structures of cells. In this biology lesson, students identify the different parts of a cell using a graphic organizer. They define the cell theory and how it relates to a cell as a whole.
Students study the characteristics of yeasts. In this biology lesson, students conduct experiments to measure yeast respiration. They discuss the favorable conditions needed for growing them.
Explore the concept of evolution and cell biology; your class can work in groups to use the internet to view websites on evolution, take a quiz, and complete a lab activity.
Final Exam Practice - General Biology
A 17-page practice final exam for a college-level introductory biology course is contained in this resource. Matching and short answer questions cover every topic that you would expect to teach during an advanced biology course including DNA and general genetics, enzyme activity, protein structure, nerve impulses, metabolic pathways, and more. Since it is a practice exam, the answers follow.
7.012 F’04 Problem Set 1 ~ Biology
Course identification information is included in the upper left corner as well as within the title of this worksheet. If you overlook or remove that information, you are left with a tremendous college biology assignment. There are only four problems to address, but each occupies at least an entire page. The first deals with ions, amino acids, and cell organelles. The second encompasses enzyme action. The third questions the structure of the cell wall in relation to enzymes. The fourth is an analysis of macromolecule structure.
2D Concept Visualization: Cell Organelles Presentation
Pupils create simple 2D concept driven visualizations of cells and cell organelles and organize them into an effective presentation.
The Case of the Biological Biosphere: Health, Math, Technology
Students investigate various aspects of the human body in this imaginative Tree House Detective episode about the biological biosphere. In a series of They take measurements, analyze data, and use technology. The lessons revolve around a video which is not provided on the website.
