DNA Sequencing Simulation
Young scholars simulate the Sanger method of DNA sequencing using color pop-beads as a representation of nucleotides and dideoxynucleotides. Students assemble DNA sequences and run their sequences through a "sequencing gel" and sketch what the DNA sequence bands should look like.

Gene Regulation Mechanisms
Students explore genetics. They discuss how chromosomes and/or genes are regulated during the life of an organism. In a lab setting, students compare and contrast the genomic regulation of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells using manipulatives.

Lab Experiences: The cookbook Translator
Students preview a copy of the lab experience and "cookbook translator" prior to the actual lab experience. They participate in the lab experience and complete the "cookbook translator" for evaluation at the completion of the laboratory experience.

Phenotypic and Genotypic Changes in Bacteria
Students investigate a rapid method to render the bacterium Escherichia coli "competent" to uptake plasmid DNA. They demonstrate the phenotypic changes associated with transformation. They perform a cell resuspension from the transformed and untransformed colonies to demonstrate that only transformed cells have the plasmid present.

COMPARISON OF FOUR-, SIX-, AND EIGHT-bp CUTS IN CALF THYMUS DNA
Students use this laboratory exercise, restriction enzymes to recognize a four-, six-, and eight-nucleotide sequence. Assuming that the four component nucleotides (A, C, T, G) are distributed randomly within a DNA molecule, then any four nucleotides can occur, on average, every 256 nucleotides, a six-nucleotide recognition site occurs every 4096 nucleotides, and an eight-nucleotide recognition site occurs every 65,536 nucleotides.

Cracking the Code - Cloning Paper Plasmid
Students explore the "genetic code." They observe how genes may be manipulated for genetic research, gene cloning, and genetic engineering. In a lab setting, students examine the mechanics involved in cutting and ligating DNAs into a plasmid vector with "sticky ends" of complimentary DNA base pairs.

Creating New Forms of Life
Although not particularly educational, here is a creative group activity in which high school biologists will use their imaginations to create a new life form combining characteristics from existing life forms. Each group must come up with a scientific and common name for their creature, a physical description, and a list of where the genes originated.

Amazon Adventure: A Case Study in Medical Technology and Bioethics
Pupils explore a case study. They use problem solving skills to determine initial procedures or experiments necessary slow disease and develop a drug. Students examine FDA drug approval procedures. They consider environmental and ethical issues in making a decision to market the drug.

Using A Winogradsky Column to Analyze Microbial Communities
Students use easily obtained materials to study ecological succession in a microbiological community. This investigation is appropriate for a variety of age groups. Elementary Students be fascinated by the changes occurring over time in their bottles.

Making The Geologic Time Scale Real
Students are assigned significant geologic events in Earth's history. They convert the date of the events into distances and then space themselves (on an outside playing field) away from other groups, to represent time between various events.

Saving Energy Through Ecological Landscape Design
Students are able to transcribe to scale the plant features of a common landscape. They determine true north and south and collect and record data on a table. Students calculate a rating for and describe a definition of insulation and insulation.

Signal Transmission in the Nervous System
Young scholars determine the speed of nervous transmission in an integrated nervous system. Students understand the differences between signal transmission in a single neuron and in a nervous system. Young scholars create a little group rapport.

How To Use Hardy-Weinberg to Find Gene Frequencies in s Wild Population
Students explore the gene frequency in Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium experiments. They inquire into the studies of both black and gray squirrels. Basically the population genetics of certain squirrel populations. The species of each are analyzed in depth.

Woodrow Wilson and American Involvement in the Great War
Students examine American involvement in World War I. In this World War I lesson plan, students investigate Wilson's policy of neutrality as they read excerpts from his messages to Congress. Students respond to questions regarding the excerpts and then compose letters on their opinions of U.

Fifth graders explore the role of African American troops in World War I. For this World War I lesson, 5th graders analyze a collection of letters from an African American soldier. Students create memorials to the men who fought in the 93rd division.
