Students make models of protiens using wire and paperclips. They are given step by step instructions with lots of information about proteins throughout the directions. They make the three basic structual elements of proteins; alpha-helix, beta-sheet, and random coil.
Sociobiology: Heredity Factors
Learners 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.
Catering Middle-School Science: Monomers, Polymers, and Macromolecules
Students 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. Students will also learn about the shapes of the molecules.
NEURONS, BRAIN CHEMISTRY, AND NEUROTRANSMISSION
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.
DNA and Protein Synthesis
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.
Genetics and Heredity: The Next Generation
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.
Nature of Biology
Learners 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.
Lesson on Proteins
Students examine the importance of proteins including their function and structure. In this protein lesson students play a game to help them better understand proteins.
The Challenge to Deliver Insulin
Students study the types of diabetes and why insulin is important. In this diabetes lesson 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.
Drugs Change the Way Neurons Communicate
Students examine that certain drugs interfere selectively with neurotransmission, and realize that the effect of a drug is dependent upon dosage and route of administration.
Health Issues Related to Space Experiments
Young scholars 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
Do You Know the Master Programmer?
Fourth graders, using candy, build models of DNA replication, RNA transcription, and tRNA translation.
Learners read an article about the importance of sleep and answer and discuss related questions, journal, and do activities on the web.
DNA from the Beginning Study Guide
Young scholars 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.
Biomedical Engineering and Diabetes
Young scholars 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.
Organic and Inorganic Recycling
Learners 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 lesson, they discover how paper and plastic are recycled.
In this biology worksheet, students examine the interrelationship between the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland and look at extreme functions.
Ion Channels Review
In this biology activity, students examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
Ion Passage Part 2
In this biology activity, students focus upon the passage of ions through the cellular membrane and how they interact in the environment.
