Students investigate nature by creating a flip book. In this tundra plants activity, students utilize a list of ecology flash cards to study different plants and identify how they adapt to their surroundings. Students collect the cards and create a flip book to assist with their study habits.
Students examine the living things that call a tundra ecosystem home.  In this ecology lesson students complete several activities.
Students examine collections. In these real-world collections lessons, students examine and describe buttons and shells. Students will then sort, classify, and graph items according to various indicated descriptors.
Students plot data to construct and interpret a graph about vestimentiferans at cold-seep sites in the Gulf of Mexico. In this deep sea lesson, students plot data provided for the growth of tubeworms. They use the graphs to determine growth rates and ages of the tubeworms.
Students investigate the differences and similarities between shallow-water and deep-sea coral reefs.  In this coral reef lesson plan, students research and compare the characteristics of reefs.  Students describe various lifeforms in coral reefs.
In this lesson, students will use the internet to search for answers to various biology questions.
Students transfer examples (names) of primates from their location in an outline hierarchy of primate groups into a set of nested boxes reflecting that same hierarchy. A cladogram can then be drawn illustrating how these groups are related in an evolution
Learners examine the concept of taxonomy. They research an animal and how they are classified. They present their material to the class using technology. They are to include illustrations with their presentation.
Students investigate deep-sea habitats. They define key vocabulary terms, conduct research on a deep ocean habitat in small groups, identify six organisms from their assigned habitat, and prepare an information card for each organism.
Students create instruments to capture different types of insects. In this The Greatest Show on Earth: The World's Smallest Animals lesson plan, students compare the attributes of certain insects and record the data on a chart. After catching the insects students observe their behavior in order to find patterns. Lastly, students build an insect zoo.
Students answer 71 questions about a variety of topics in biology. In this biology trivia lesson plan, students use the internet to find the answer to questions about the systems of the body, their structures and functions, the different species in the various kingdoms and phyla and different types of diseases.
The main characteristics and definitive features of red, green, brown, and 4 other algea are listed along with great photos and examples. The details involved with reproduction styles, and information about traits of each Phyla are given. There are many diagrams and clear images in this logical and complete presentation.
This is a wonderful PowerPoint! It gives excellent details of different types of ferns and their characteristics which help them to survive and produce spores in many varied habitats.
What a terrific lesson! Learners discuss the animal kingdom, and classify them as vertebrates and invertebrates. They also identify them as fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. There is even a taxonomic breakdown of popular animals.
Sixty-five slides cover the invertebrate phyla in deliberate detail. The presentation begins with general characteristics of all animals, it differentiates among they types of food eaters, and then it separates vertebrates from vertebrates. A slide is also included on symmetry. The rest of the PowerPoint is dedicated to sponges, cnidarians, and the worms. Most of the photos and diagrams, which are found on every slide, are clear and legible. This resource will be a strong support to your classification curriculum.
Students explore taxonomy and how birds are classified in this scientific system. They use this knowledge to create entries for a field guide to birds that can be used to identify different species.
Youngsters examine four fossil replicas and chart their time periods, vertebrate or invertebrate, and the names of other organisms living at the same time. A specific fossil kit is available for sale if you do not have the same samples. The background reading material and student handouts are high-quality, so it may be worthwhile to invest in the fossils required: ammonite, oviraptor egg, crinoid, and trilobite.
Students complete a unit on fossils. They read and discuss informational handouts, define key vocabulary terms, answer discussion questions, create a geologic timeline and a timeline of their own life, analyze bones, and create a fossil cast.
Students discover not all fish in the water look the same and that some have adapted to life on the bottom such as flatfish. Students participate in a movement activity that relates to facts about flatfish.
Seventh graders study spiders. They view spider silk through a microscope and compare it to human hair or other fibrous materials. In groups, they compare the strength and elasticity of spider silk. Finally they watch a teacher demonstration on polymers.
