Pupils examine conception and fetal development. They discover how to make responsible choices for prenatal care.
Students use a KWL chart and describe their knowledge of fertilization, pregnancy and birth. They watch a video of fertilization and development and create a poem, song or dance about what they have learned.
The journey of a fertilized egg is illustrated as it travels from the fallopian tube to the uterus. Cell division is explained and the miracle of life is shown.
Nearly all students have seen pregnant women and may have questions about human development. Intended for secondary students with mild to moderate mental disabilities, this activity defines the process of pregnancy  in a developmentally appropriate way. They define the term pregnancy, sort a collection of images depicting pregnant and not pregnant women, brainstorm differences they see, then discuss fetal development. The Miracle of Life by NOVA is suggested viewing.
Students examine conception, fetal development, birth defects, including the risk factors of pregnancy and the birth process. They study the changes a woman's body endures during the different stages of pregnancy.
With this animated, storybook-style application, journey through the phenomenal processes of fertilization, gestation, and human development. 
Engage Secondary Special Education students in a developmentally appropriate lesson on human reproduction. They review genital anatomy and 5 key components that comprise the reproductive cycle. Perfect for a mild to moderately disabled class. Handouts are included.
Teenagers take on the human reproductive systems when viewing this presentation. Labeled diagrams of each are displayed, along with one of a fetus in utero. Presented in bullet-point fashion are facts about the formation of sperm and egg cells, secondary sex characteristics, and organ functions. Show this factual PowerPoint in a biology or health class when covering reproduction and fetal development.
Open this lesson with a discussion on birth defects. Break the class into groups to visit a website and learn about what happens at each stage of human embryo and fetal development. Assign each group a particular birth defect to research and create a slide show to present to the rest of the class. Note that in Step three of the lesson plan, the PowerPoint that you are supposed to show is not included. There are, however, a student worksheet and group presentation grading rubric. 
Details of fertilization, cleavage, the placenta and fetal development are presented, along with important diagrams and illustrations. By using these slides, you and your students will generate discussion points, along with details needed for college preparation courses.
For this development worksheet, students review the process of fertilization in placental organisms. Students determine what trimester certain events take place in a fetus' development. This worksheet has 10 fill in the blank and 7 matching questions.
Students examine organisms that are composed of tissues, organs, and systems. They dissect a fetal pig and explore the assigned organs systems such as the skeletal, muscular, and circulatory organs. Students identify and explain their organ and its function to other their peers.
Students, analyze and discuss cleft lip, cleft palate, anencephaly, spina bifida and septal defects in the heart--well-known malformations that can occur in the first trimester of prenatal devalopment. They play the review game, Fetal Pursuit.
Students graph data on fetal and infant mortality rates collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They identify trends in the data and propose potential causes for the trends.
Students compare mitosis and meiosis with regard to chromosome number in parent cells versus daughter cells, types of cells produced, total number of cells produced, and the number of divisions. In groups, identify and differentiate the major characteristics of vertebrate development and explain the relationships among the number of eggs, methods of fertilization, and rates of embryonic development as related to species survival.
High schoolers identify pictures of women labeling them pregnant or not pregnant. They discover what happens inside a woman when she is pregnant. They explain the relationship bettwen intercourse, fertilization and parenthood.
Learners identify the parts of the human body involved in reproduction. They examine the process of fertilization and discover all species reproduce. They practice using new vocabulary as well.
This exam touches upon every topic within the typical first year biology course.. A broad variety of question styles give high schoolers every opportunity to show what they know. Why start from scratch when a comprehensive final exam is easily available to you?
Emerging ecologists need a full understanding of life, from the inner workings of a cell to the complex relationships among organisms. This examination is meant to assess high schoolers after an entire year course on the living environment. You will find 42 mulitple choice questions, as well as chart completion, diagram analysis, and written response to reading. This and other Regents examinations are ideal practice for AP tests.
Environmental science enthusiasts show what they know at the end of the year by taking this full-fledged final exam. They answer multiple choice, graph interpretation, and essay analysys questions, 73 of them in all. Topics range from cell structure and function to population ecology. This exam blows others away with the variety included!
