Following Proteins in Eukaryotic Cells
Stimulate critical thinking about the proteins that are active within eukaryotic cells. Biology masters explain where DNA is found, its relationship to RNA, how the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi bodies interact, and more. They also diagram the process of protein formation.

Osmosis and Plant Cells
Aside from obviously being a photocopy and a couple of minor formatting problems, this is a laudable lab activity for exploring osmosis. Biology groups cut potato chunks into equal volumes and record the mass of each. They place two chunks into each of three different concentrations of salt solution and later record the new masses.

The Making of the Fittest: Natural Selection and Adaptation
The pocket mouse can be light brown like the sands of the desert, or dark brown like the volcanic lava flows that are interspersed throughout New Mexico's Valley of Fire. It seems that predators have weeded out light colored mice in this volcanic landscape.

The Origin of Species: Lizards in an Evolutionary Tree
Different islands in the Caribbean have very similar species of anole lizards, which each have their own place in the ecosystem. Researchers did several studies to determine whether the anoles evolved into the different species then migrated to the different islands or evolved independently on each island.

The Origin of Species: The Beak of the Finch
After finding from this feature that the famous finches of the Galapagos have developed different beak styles depending on the food available on their island, pupils can play a game of matching finch songs. In a lab activity, they can also analyze data to form conclusions about the relationship between natural selection and the beak shapes.

Regents High School Examination: Living Environment 2003
The living environment, from the interior of a cell to the complex relationships among populations, are queried in this final examination. Learners look at air pollution maps, diagrams of cells, population graphs, and drawing of cells. They answer multiple choice, graphing, and written response style questions.

A thorough investigation of cell transport is provided when completing the assignment. The first half requires biology class members to answer questions about diffusion and osmosis with the aid of diagrams. Then they fashion an experiment, using dialysis tubing as a model of the selectively permeable cell membrane, to determine whether a starch or sugar molecule is smaller.

Time for Mitosis Lab
After examining the cells of an onion root tip, budding biologists analyze numbers of cells in each different phase of mitosis. They combine their counts with other students' data and then calculate the amount of time a cell might spend in each phase.
