The Moon’s Rotation: It’s Just a Phase!

Students examine how the moon rotates around the Earth and changes with time.  In this moon phase lesson students set up a model and create a sunrise and moonrise.

For the final step of the performance task for this unit, class members will create an illustration to go with the paragraph on their bookmark. After looking at models, guide pupils toward recognizing the criteria for an effective illustration. They can then spend the remainder of the class drawing. Take the time to circulate and check that their illustrations add to their informational paragraphs. While this is part of a specific unit, the project idea and specific procedures could easily be adapted for other purposes. 

Sochi 2014 Mascots

Get to know the mascots for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics with this fun, cooperative art activity. Start by introducing the new mascots and comparing them with those form previous years. Consider using a Venn diagram to record comparisons and discuss ideas for why these particular mascots were chosen. Then break the class into small groups, asking each to accurately color the mascot you assign them. These pictures will then be cut into puzzle pieces and given to other groups to reassemble. Use this lesson to teach descriptive language, inviting individuals to write short, illustrative paragraphs about a mascot of their choosing.

Phases of Meiosis

The general ideas behind Mitosis and Meiosis have been covered in previous videos. However, this lecture covers the minutiae of every stage in the meiotic process. The names of each phase and a description of the structure functions are detailed.

Turkeys in the Cell -- The Meiosis Square Dance

Students identify the differences between the processes of mitosis and meiosis and explain how meiosis generates new combinations for natural selection. They illustrate the processes by square dancing.

Cell 9 Edited: Meiosis

Student list the steps of mitosis with a brief definition of each stage. Then they begin their study of meiosis. They practice placing the stages of meiosis in order using flashcards depicting the Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, and Telophase.

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.

AC Phase

In this AC phase worksheet, students answer 24 questions about AC and DC voltages, phasor diagrams, sine wave graphs and Lissajous figures.

Turkeys in the Cell--The Meiosis Square Dance

Students identify synapsis as the key event in meiosis. They explain how synapsis leads to the formation of haploid gametes. Exploration of the differences between the processes of mitosis and meiosis occur. In accordance, explanations on how meiosis generates new combinations for natural selection.

Meiosis and Sexual Reproduction

Eighth graders hypothesize if a plant with white flowers is crossed with a plant with purple flowers, what are the possible genotypes and phenotypes of the offspring. They define meiosis, compare/contrast meiosis and mitosis and state the phases of meiosis.
