So You Think the World Evolves Around You?
Young scholars examine the topic of evolution as it relates to biodiversity in various remote areas of the world. They watch videos, conduct Internet research, and in small groups create a digital video report to illustrate common evolution in their own world.

Student Investigation on the Immune System and Hemeagglutination
Students perform an experiment to demonstrate the principles of antibody-antigen binding, the secondary immune response, cross reactivity, and complement fixation. The materials to be used include antibodies from a rabbit that was injected once with red cells from a sheep and also one that was injected three times with the red cells from a sheep.

Great Lakes Ecology
Students are able to use a secchi disk to measure the turbidity of water by determining the depth at which the sechi disk is no longer visible and using the data in a formula to quantify the results. They are able to use Vernier probes to condcut water quality testing for: dissolved oxygen, nitrates, pH, temperature, phosphorous and produce computer printouts of the data collected.

Special Segments in Triangles
In this special segments in triangles worksheet, 10th graders solve 86 various types of problems that include determining the measure of various triangles. They draw and label a figure that illustrates each situation. Then, students prove triangles congruent by the given theorem or postulate.

What's Down There
Students write an essay about the coral reefs. In this oceanography lesson, students investigate the reef of Bonaire and compare it to reefs that are not thriving. Students then explore the differences that contribute to the overall health of the coral reefs.

How can deep-water corals be used to determine long-term patterns of climate change?
Students explore the concept of paleoclimatological proxies. In this paleoclimatological proxies lesson, students explain isotope ratios in deep water coral samples. Students write a paragraph about global climate change as it effects their life.
