Architects of the Coral Reef
Coral Reefs are the focus of a life science lesson plan. Upper graders look at how coral reefs are formed, how the animals and plants reproduce, and the variety of ways that humans benefit from coral reefs around the world. Groups of learners identify the major coral reefs that are in danger due to human activities, and propose plans to reduce those negative impacts.

Third Quarter Review - Biology Jeopardy
To review for an exam on classification and evolutionary concepts, junior biologists can play Biology Jeopardy! Multiple-choice questions are presented in game-show style with large colorful photos and graphics. Since each individual slide presents a single question and a second click reveals the answer, this collection can still be used for review even if your class is too small to play the game.
