Population Dynamics of Growth of Drosophila

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
