Specialized Chromosomes Determine Gender
Are you an XX or an XY? Budding scientists learn about cellular fertilization and the determination of gender in a thorough online lesson. They follow their study with a set of interactive reflection questions.
Phylum Porifera – The Sponges
They may not look like it, but sponges are living, breathing creatures! A PowerPoint presentation explains the important characteristics of the invertebrate Phylum Porifera, or more commonly known as the sponges. From their body...
Transform your class' understanding of genes and antibiotic resistance with the Transformation Lab. Junior geneticists create and observe their own resistant strains of E. coli through research, discussion, and experimentation. The...
Asexual Reproduction in Plants
The third lesson in the series of 10 introduces scholars to asexual reproduction through vegetative propagation. Pupils observe, draw, and label various types of plants before cutting and planting them to complete the life cycle.

An Inquiry into Alcoholic Fermentation
Introduce life science students to their new "best buds" yeast! Using a wide variety of materials, lab groups design an experiment that illustrates how yeast acquires the resources it needs to undergo cellular respiration. The teacher's...
Introduction to Plant Reproduction
Eight objectives pertaining to plant reproduction are stated and addressed in this presentation. Objectives include defining sexual and asexual reproduction, comparing monocots to dicots, explaining flower types, and more. Some of the...
AP: Chapter 13: Meiosis and Sexual Life Cycles
Biology learners highlight the features of asexual and sexual reproduction in this life cycle learning exercise. They take an in-depth look at the role of chromosomes in meiosis and the overall process of reproduction.
What's the Difference?
Students analyze the similarities in different species. This lesson is part of a multi-segmented unit on the diversity of life. For this segment, students classify shoes to mimic the scientific categories of the classification system.
Presented clearly and accurately, this PowerPoint introduces biology learners to asexual reproduction in plants. It begins by comparing asexual to sexual reproduction by definition and by the pros and cons of each. The remaining slides...
Pond Water Survey
High schoolers identify and describe various organisms living in a pond water environment. They describe the characteristics of living things. Students compare and contrast organisms created by asexual reproduction and sexual...
Plant Reproduction Chapter #4
