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. They describe its life processes and adaptations, and sketch the organism as well.
Tenth graders deliberate about what to do with the Alsace-Lorraine. In this World War I instructional activity, 10th graders analyze documents about the future of the Alsace-Lorraine at the Paris Peace Conference. Students collaborate to decide what to do about the piece of land and submit written proposals that they compare to the Treaty of Versailles.
Students review the basic concepts of genetics, such as Mendelian inheritance and pedigree construction and analysis. They use an activity that uses recent findings in cancer genetics to present. Students use a pedigree in a "real life" situation, much like a genetic counselor.
