Cellular Biology Overview: Cell Structure and Classification
Students explore the different characteristics of the cell using a virtual lab. In this biology lesson, students classify an unknown cell sample based on its properties. They demonstrate mastery of the subject by creating a presentation of their findings.

The Twisting Tale of DNA
Introduce biology classes to the structure of DNA, the role of genes, and how mutations occur with this nifty resource. After viewing an animated video, discuss the accompanying Think questions and then explore the myriad of additional resources that can be accessed through the Dig Deeper feature with your life scientists.

WET Science Lesson #5: Pass the Salt Please! (How Road Salt Affects Wetlands)
As an anticipatory set, biologists listen to the story of Ruth Patrick, a scientist who used algae to detect water quality. They observe a demonstration of osmosis and diffusion. In their lab groups, they place Elodea stalks in saltwater, then examine the condition after five minutes.

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2003 - Information for the Public
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.

CELL TRANSFORMATION IN TOBACCO LEAF DISKS
Students work with whole plant material and are not required to measure small quantities, yet they can see evidence of transformed plant cells (plant cells that have genes from bacterial plasmids). This is a laboratory suitable for students who are familiar with the basic principles of plant cell structure, tissue culture, sterile technique, and cell transformation (bacterial infection, plasmid vectors, marker genes, selection medium, and enzyme activity assays).

Series or Parallel?
Emerging electricians extend mental models of light bulbs and resistors in series and or in parallel circuits to include the connection of photovoltaic cells in arrays. They investigate open circuits, using a DC voltmeter, a light source, and photovoltaic cells.

A Cellular Overview
This is an interesting survey of the cell. Biology pupils describe the relationship between cells, tissues, and organs. They explain cell theory, compare prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and provide evidence for the endosymbiont theory. A critical thinking question asks them what they would need in order to tell if a cell was prokaryotic or eukaryotic.

Analogy of the Cell Project
Intended to supplement your existing cell function and organelle lessons, pairs work together to develop a real-world analogy for cell structures. In addition to writing paragraphs about the comparison, each group will make a short presentation in class to share their work.

Cells and the Cell Membrane
Students investigate the properties of cell membranes by isolating the membrane surrounding chicken eggs. They set up an experiment by placing eggs in a vinegar solution for three days. A powerpoint lecture emphasizes the structure of the plasma membrane.

Stem Cell Differentiation Game Questions
Thirty-five multiple-choice questions are spread out into boxes bordered with dotted lines so that they can be cut out to become game cards. Playing a game to review concepts is an effective way to learn, even if you are in college. Give these question cards to your biology class during stem cell studies so that they can review for an exam.

Molecular Biology and Primate Phylogenics
By counting differences in amino acids, biology stars examine the relationships between different primates. With information gleaned, they map out a phylogenic tree and discover common ancestry. You will need to create printable versions of the amino acid charts and blank phylogenic trees for your classes, but this is a well-planned resource that you can use in your AP Biology classes to help your learners explore evolutionary relationships.
