Twenty-six pages of biology questions, mostly in multiple-choice form, are included in the all-encompassing New York State Regents exam. It assesses every topic typically covered in a high-school biology course. Create your own answer sheet and use this as your final exam, or get ideas from it for questions to create your own.
Students examine the dangers of mountain climbing. After watching a video, they discuss the role of a German research team going into the Alps to predict who is going to adjust to the change in oxygen levels. They discover the relationship between mountain climbing and psychology.
Examine the effects of temperature and pressure on solubility and the states of matter of ocean water. Learners make inferences about the unique chemistry of ocean water at different depths. They engage in an activity related to solubility principles and complete a worksheet.
Sixth graders work together to complete an experiment about the quality of freshwater. In groups, they collect fresh water samples from a variety of sources and test the pH levels. After completing a KWL chart, they test the amout of dissolved oxygen in the samples. To end the lesson, they relate this information to the requirements that freshwater fish need to survive.
Second graders learn about the human body. For this biology lesson plan, 2nd graders will begin with the basics of understanding charts and graphs and progress into units that cover the body systems, and mental and emotional health. Students will learn how their daily choices effect their bodies.
Oceanography enthusiasts are given a series of thought experiments to consider in order to relate the solubility of gases and solids to underwater volcanoes. It is not particularly engaging to perform these thought experiments. Choose just a few for learners to perform. This will bring the lesson to life and help them visualize what the cannot see on the ocean floor.
Learners investigate oxidation-reduction reactions involving iron by conducting an experiment in which they expose iron filings to different atmospheric and ocean conditions. They relate the results to the oxidation banding patterns seen in sedimentary rocks and the formation of an oxygen-rich atmosphere on Earth.
Separate your science class into small groups and assign each a specific deep-sea organism to research. The class will learn about all of the organisms as each group presents their assigned animal. Following their presentations, you can connect the different organisms into a food web. The lesson itself is simple, yet many resources are provided so that you can explore the topic of deep-sea communities in more depth!
