Students examine DNA replication and how proteins are synthesized from DNA codes and continue to explore the effects of genetics in additional lessons. Among the topics covered are: protein synthesis, cell chemistry, environmental factors, as well as various laboratory experiments.
Young scholars investigate foods. In this biology lesson plan, students will conduct testing on different types of foods as they learn about different molecules that make them up. Young scholars will also learn about the shapes of the molecules.
College-level biologists describe ions and van der Waals forces. They identify parts of amino acid chains on diagrams and describe the chains in a checklist. In a second section, learners compare prokaryotic to eukaryotic cells and then match organelles with their functions or characteristics. Finally, they mark portions of a sequence of amino acids that are expected to be transmembrane regions. This is an ideal assignment to give as a unit review.
Students examine the hierarchical organization of the brain, neuron, and synapse; explain the sequence of events involved in communication at the synapse; and that synaptic transmission involves neurotransmitters.
Tenth graders work with a partner, and copies of the attached worksheet "Amino Acid Codon Table" They discuss ways an organism, obtains and uses proteins. Students view a teacher prepared DNA strand banner, and record the complementary DNA sequence that would form during replication. Students receive one of the needed eight codon or mRNA anti-codon cards (also teacher created), 10th graders arrange themselves in the correct mRNA sequence. Students discuss real life examples.
Tenth graders work in teams to order events of DNA transcription and translation protein synthesis. In the second lesson, they put the steps of mitosis and meiosis in order using a concept map poster. They use modeling clay to create models of cells undergoing these changes. In the third lesson, 10th graders create Punnett squares, and participate in an interactive lecture on genes, alleles, traits and geno/pheno types.
Students study biology and the different life processes. In this exploratory lesson students identify the parts of a microscope and the tools used in research and technology.
Future geneticists use base pairing rules to build DNA and RNA polypeptide strands, and then explain both transcription and translation. Although the chains themselves are a little blurry, there is plenty of room in them for learners to fill in the missing complimentary base. This exercise provides essential practice when your class is studying molecular biology.
Learners examine the importance of proteins including their function and structure. In this protein lesson students play a game to help them better understand proteins.
Students study the types of diabetes and why insulin is important. In this diabetes instructional activity students build molecular models and create a healthy lifestyle plan.
Students examine the controversies surrounding the use of performance-enhancing supplements in sports by interviewing athletes and writing feature articles that compare the skills required to compete in different sports.
High schoolers examine that certain drugs interfere selectively with neurotransmission, and realize that the effect of a drug is dependent upon dosage and route of administration.
Students participate in a science lesson that integrates connections between health issues on Earth and how those issues are related to studies conducted on the International Space Station. T
Fourth graders, using candy, build models of DNA replication, RNA transcription, and tRNA translation.
Ms. Strohfeldt did not omit anything when she designed this comprehensive lesson plan on DNA mutation and sex-linked traits. Begin with a pretest as an anticipatory set. Read a case history of the Clark family and the occurrence of hemophilia in the family. Biologists perform a simulation of a gel electrophoresis for each member of the family and explore DNA sequences. You will find detailed teacher's notes, worksheets with answer keys, and resource links to help you teach this activity.
Students read an article about the importance of sleep and answer and discuss related questions, journal, and do activities on the web.
You might love this lesson, or you might not. Basically, high school scientists read through a script in which someone interviews a physicist, a biologist, and a chemist in regard to their use of nanotechnology. The names of the involved characters are clever, and the material is fascinating. It is quite long, however. The pictures that are discussed will need to be enlarged and displayed as they represent posters on the walls of the interviewees. This can be used in any science course as an enrichment activity.
Students complete a study guide using a website which is an animated primer on DNA, genes, and heredity. The Web site is organized around key concepts. The web links and study guide are included.
Students discuss diabetes, it causes, and old and current technology to control the disease. They discuss biomedical engineering and new technology to control the disease. The examine the various types of insulin delivery systems and demonstrate an understanding of each type of delivery system.
Students examine their role in polluting the environment and discuss the importance of recycling. In groups, they place earthworms into compost piles to observe why they are considered natural recyclers. They also practice sorting a pile of materials into recycleable and non-recyclable objects. To end the instructional activity, they discover how paper and plastic are recycled.
