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!
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, they research the most recent court cases and develop their own opinion on the issue.
In this environmental worksheet students complete a series of multiple choice and short answer questions on cell types, cell division, chromosomes and plant species.
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 instructional activity for one day. It might take more than one day if you cover all of the material.
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. 
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. They develop their own opinions on the issue and present them to the class as a presentation or debate.

Students describe the development of an infant from conception to birth. In this biology lesson plan, students discover how a child's brain develop. They explain how children acquire motor and cognitive skills.
Students discuss the options when finding out they are pregnant in middle school or high school. In groups, they research the history of abortion along with the complications that can arise. As a class, they discuss the reasons why the man might want the women to have an abortion. To end the lesson, they identify the issues of having intercourse at such a young age.

Pupils read profiles of the various generations of Hispanics living in the United States. In groups, they examine the numbers of Hispanics either getting into trouble at school or becoming pregnant while still in school. To end the lesson, they read a case study and answer comprehension questions about the actions needed to help young mothers.

Students complete a variety of activities to study different concepts in Science. The activities are part of a layered curriculum. This is used to differentiate instruction and give a wide variety of assessment opportunities.
Students investigate the effects of smoking. In this personal health lesson plan, students design and administer surveys about smoking habits of teens and conduct research. Students create PowerPoint presentations that feature their findings to be shown to students in lower grades.
Adolescents compare and assess the efficacy of tobacco product health warning labels from around the world. In groups, they invent warnings and create labels that would be effective for teens and children. Discussion covers advertising ethics, the role of government in safeguarding health, and of course, the negative effects of smoking.
