Tenth graders investigate about mitosis, meiosis, and cell differentiation and their purposes and implications in the development and functioning of multicellular organisms. Students use individual journals and a variety of hands-on activities summarized by group discussions.
Students study karyotyping, which is a process in which chromosomes are cut out from an enlarged picture and arranged in decreasing order of size. They use a template to arrange and glue chromosomes to data sheet, indicate sample code, chromosome abnormality and sex of sample.
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. This is truly an all-encompassing assessment!
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!
Reebops are cute, marshmallow-based creatures that can be used to teach inheritance. Beginning biologists draw strips of paper that represent chromosomes from two envelopes, one for the father, and one for the mother. Each parent contributes an allelle to help determine the traits for the baby reebop. Traits include number of antennae, curly or straight tails, nose color, and more! To conclude the activity, learners construct a reebop model with the characteristics drawn. Adorable!
Like a fresh canvas, stem cells can turn into almost anything. In a comprehensive lesson, high school biologists use clay to build a 3-D model of cell division and the processes that occur during the first 14 days of development. Also included is a detailed graphic organizer for taking notes about the important concepts and vocabulary related to stem cells. The procedure is very clear and easy to follow; your pupils will enjoy getting their hands dirty while learning about how they all came to be.
Twenty-six pages of good information about pregnancy. Pictures and descriptions describe the moment the sperm and egg unite, and there are worksheets that students can complete. This is a pretty comprehensive lesson for one day. It might take more than one day if you cover all of the material.
Ninth graders are introduced to the concept of human embryology. Individually, they complete an exercise in which they determine which trait they got from which family member. In groups, they identify and label the reproductive organs of males and females. As a class, they discuss the moral and ethic issues involved with test tube babies to end the lesson.
Twelfth graders define cloning in their own words and examine the different types of cloning. After reading an article, they summarize it in their own words and use the internet to research the history of cloning. In groups, they participate in an experiment in which they simulate the process of bacterial cloning. To end the lesson plan, they research the most recent court cases and develop their own opinion on the issue.
Many changes happen to a pregnant woman's body, mind, and emotions in these nine months. Discover and talk about these many changes. The class may know some of these things, but some things they might not know about, or they don't know why it happens. Men also go through some changes.
Students in a special education class examine the United States Constitution. Using the text, they answer five research questions and discuss the amendments that concern medicine, ethics and law of the right to die issue.
