Keep clam and read on! After reading the textbook selection about mollusks and worms in the additional materials section, your young zoologists check their comprehension by answering the questions on the handout found here. To differentiate, groups could jigsaw the reading and share information with each other to complete the worksheet.
Laboratory activities encourage evolutionary biology scholars to consider homologous structures as evidence of common ancestry. They learn how to formulate phylogenic trees and that environment influences to genetic variation. Activities are pertinent to high school biology courses and in this resource they are explained in detail for your convenience.
Can you train a worm? Biology buffs will have a blast trying! Using planaria or earthworms, they introduce a certain stimulus repeatedly until the desired response happens more quickly. They also explore the response of their own eyes to light and their eye-hand coordination. All of these activities enhance the learning of animal response to environmental stimuli.
The author of this presentation elaborates on the details of insect classification, information apparently required to become a master gardener in the horticulture program at Oregon State University. Though lengthy (110 slides), it is an outstanding collection of photos, graphs, and diagrams to educate the viewer in basic entomology. Not only could this be used as a resource for horticulture classes, it can even stand as an introduction to a college entomology course.
Students explore biodiversity and populations using Alaska's wildlife as their focus. In this environmental statistics lesson, students examine the concept of exponential growth in a population and calculate the change in population. Students compare reproductive rates to rates of population. They describe their graphs and three factors that affect the rate of population growth.
Students investigate nature by creating a flip book. In this tundra plants instructional 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.
Convey classification to your amateur biologists with this bright and bold presentation. After you introduce each kingdom, query your viewers with the included reinforcement questions. Since there are no photos of the different organisms, you will want to locate pictures, posters, or actual live specimens to display as an example of each. This one addition would make the slide show a comprehensive lesson on biological classification.
Students are introduced to the classification system of animals. In groups, they set up an aquarium in which they must maintain throughout the year. They also observe earthworms and how they react to various stimuli and research the characteristics of arthropods. To end the lesson, they focus on one phylum of animals and present their information to the class.
Students examine animals belonging to the various animal phyla. In this animal phyla lesson plan, students observe and answer questions about animals at different stations in the classroom. They draw the animals they observe and answer questions about external features and the characteristics of the particular animal phyla observed.
