Read informational text which relays how medical care differs around the globe and throughout history. There are three separate lessons, each focused on a particular case study, regional medical availability, and cultural norms. Learners use the provided information to analyze and research a medical condition and possible treatment plan. This is a very complete series which includes worksheets, case studies, background information, narratives, and a glossary.
It has appeal; Vivid microscopic images or colorful diagrams are displayed on almost every slide of this introduction to cells. Visit scientists who contributed to cell theory, learn the general components of cells, and compare prokaryotes to eukaryotes. As enrichment, explore the endosymbiosis theory. Overall, this would be an informative introduction to cells for your high school biology inquisitors.
Assign these 50 questions to your biology class as a review of cell division. Learners will address the cell cycle, cancer cells, cytokinesis, mitosis, meiosis, gene and chromosomal mutations, and karyotypes. The format is user-friendly, leaving room for pupils to write their answers beneath each question. It would be helpful in preparing them for a quiz on cell division concepts.
An information-packed eight-page article detailing the history of understanding active transport across cell membranes makes up the bulk of this handout. Two pages of reading comprehension and critical-thinking questions follow. The article is fascinating and illuminates the importance of aquaporins and the ion channels present in cell membranes. This reading analysis would serve as an enriching assignment for your biology class when studying the cell membrane or homeostasis.
Two terrific slide shows are included in this biology resource. The first covers the organelles and general structure of both plant and animal cells. It even explains the cell memebrane proteins: receptors, markers, and channel proteins. The second features cell transport processes. Almost all of the colorful diagrams are clear and offer plenty of detail. There is even an animation demonstrating diffusion. Use this as a support to your lessons on the cell in your high school biology class.
The classic examination of onion root tip cells as an introduction to mitosis is explicitly planned out in this resource. First, a reading passage acquaints learners with the stages of mitosis. A separate worksheet serves as a pre-lab, reviewing what was read. A procedure is provided for finding an example of each stage on a slide of cells. A lab sheet allows explorers to draw what they see through the microscope and answer analysis questions. This is a valuable time-saver for your biology curriculum.
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. Analysis questions help lab mates think critically through the inquiry. This simple, straightforward activity will enlighten learners about this form of passive transport.
