Mitosis, Meiosis and Sexual Reproduction
This video assumes certain knowledge of how variation is introduced and that sexual reproduction results in a combinations of DNA from the parents. Important vocabulary is introduced and defined. There are also examples of gametes, zygotes and the different types of cells and structures involved on an introductory level.
The Male Reproductive System
Teaching middle schoolers about the male reproductive system can be a challenge in and of itself. It's a sensitive topic for many. Create a safe, respectful class climate before teaching this topic. Make sure you, the teacher, are comfortable with the topic as there will undoubtedly be many questions that need to be answered. This lesson addresses the physical structure and function of the reproductive system as well as healthy habits for male teenagers.
Ecology - Reproduction and heredity
Students correlate signs of spring with reproductive strategies of varioius organisms. They describe how organisms inherit traits from generation to generation.
Sexual and Asexual Reproduction
Students differentiate the processes involved in sexual and asexual reproduction. In this plant science lesson, students discuss the pros and cons of both methods. They explain how sexual reproduction can lead to genetic diversity.
Begin looking at reproduction by contrasting sexual reproduction with asexual reproduction. Sexual reproduction gives us genetic variation as meiosis creates brand new chromosomes through cross over. Male and female anatomy is covered, as well as menstruation and fertilization. The video unfortunately cuts out right when development of an embryo is beginning, but a lot is covered in the entirety of this clip.
Flowers Seeking Pollinators
Why are flowers so darn pretty? Well, as your class will find out, it has a little something to do with pollination and plant reproduction. The class discusses all the things that make flowers attractive and how those attractive features lure birds, bats, animals, and insects to help them pollinate other plants or disperse their seeds. They complete a plant diagram and then make flowers of their own that have specific traits tailored to attracting specific types of pollinators. It is a great lesson with background information for you and a project for your kids!
Sex & Reproduction
Students examine animal reproduction by interpreting data and making arguments and then create their own graphs to explore relationships of organ systems. This lesson includes an individual worksheet and a reflective review question for assessment.
Students explore the ways in which various organisms reproduce and discuss the role that reproduction plays in the life cycle. They compare and contrast the benefits of sexual and asexual reproduction.
Reproduction: Cycle of Life
Students explore how organisms reproduce. In this video-based lesson, students discuss the role that genetics and evolution play in reproduction and the success of offspring.
In this biology instructional activity, students find the words that are related to the study of human reproduction and the answers are found at the bottom of the page.
The Human Reproductive System
Students identify the parts of a male and female reproductive system and what the jobs of those parts are. In this reproduction lesson plan students describe some reproductive technologies.
Asexual versus Sexual Reproduction
Students explore reproduction. They research organisms and groups of organisms to determine whether they reproduce sexually or asexually. In addition, they determine the organism's habitat.
Reproduction, Day 1: Reproductive System
Engage Secondary Special Education students in a developmentally appropriate activity on human reproduction. They review genital anatomy and 5 key components that comprise the reproductive cycle. Perfect for a mild to moderately disabled class. Handouts are included.
In this reproduction worksheet, students read four paragraphs about reproduction and match eight terms to their definitions. Topics include sexual reproduction, chromosomes, genes and asexual reproduction.
Students are actively involved in presenting some of the issues in implanting previously frozen embryos through a cooperative learning lesson. This lesson helps students to develop decision-making skills through discussing various types of assisted reproduction are currently available and under what circumstances this process may be used through role-play.
Meiosis and Sexual Reproduction
Eighth graders are able to define meiosis. They are able to compare and contrast meiosis and mitosis. Students are able to state the phases of meiosis. They complete a K-W-L chart on meiosis and mitosis. Students talk about meiosis and sexual reproduction and give definitions.
Reproduction, Day 5: Birth Control
Students with mild to moderate disabilities discuss human reproduction and the importance of preventing pregnancy. They review reproductive anatomy, sexual decision making, and what birth control is. The lesson concludes with a vocabulary game to help solidify concept understanding. A note to the care provider, game pieces, and handouts are included.
Reproduction, Day 3: Parenthood
Reproduction can result in parenthood. Discuss the pros and cons, responsibility, and possible results of sexual intercourse. Intended for a secondary special education class, this instructional activity is developmentally appropriate for mild to moderately disabled high schoolers.
Sixth graders investigate how asexual reproduction produces single-parent offspring. They use plants and yeast to demonstrate vegetative propagation and budding in a laboratory. Students draw five different types of asexual reproduction.
New! Educational apps reviews are available to members
When learning about the reproductive system, matching the new vocabulary to the correct anatomical part can be a challenge, so why not make it a game? Practice identifying the male and female reproductive parts in a quick quiz.
