Twelfth graders research steam engine technology in order to write a report and develop a timeline. In this steam engine technology lesson plan, 12th graders access assigned web sites and reference materials to find information on steam engines. They word process a report and develop a timeline which are peer edited before being turned in.
Pretty purple slides present a plethora of jargon related to genetic engineering. Most of them have one term across the top and a brief explanation of that term below. They are arranged in alphabetical order, which may not be the most cohesive approach to teaching this material. Colorful graphics make them attractive, but do not enhance the meaning of the vocabulary terms.
The details and definitions of Biotechnology and genetic engineering are very useful, but this is a very long PowerPoint with no images or ways of breaking up the information. The slides are nicely composed and relevant, so this could be used as a serviceable resource in a classroom.
Power generation and energy usage are the focus of a lesson on technology tradeoffs. Class members consider the positive and negative effects of such energy sources as diesel fuel and gasoline, and after considering the tradeoffs, take a stance on which they would choose and why. Attachments, rubrics, extensions and a bibliography are included.
Really a unit, this resource exposes middle schoolers to genetics at their level. They read interviews and biographies, trace a family tree, play games that simulate inheritance concepts, and more! Teacher's procedures, student worksheets, extensions, and modifications are all provided. You will not want to miss out on this terrific life science resource!
