Proving an Ecosystem’s Health Through Succession
Students engage in viewing day three of ecosystem changes in lab groups to determine if the ecosystem is healthy or unhealthy based on scientific data and factors.
Mendelian Genetics Using Monohybrids
Students will work collaboratively through a fictitious, real-world scenario to determine the probability of each breeding pair of dogs producing offspring with the desired trait for a fictitious client.
Covalent Bonding: Electron Dot Diagrams
Given descriptions, diagrams, scenarios, or chemical symbols, students will model covalent bonds using electron dot formula (Lewis structures).
Forms of Energy
Given diagrams, illustrations, or descriptions, students will identify the types of energy.
Law of Conservation of Energy: Heat Transfer
Given illustrations, scenarios, descriptions, and/or diagrams, students will demonstrate understanding of heat transfer.
Given descriptions, diagrams, scenarios, or chemical symbols, students will calculate the energy changes and identify exothermic and endothermic reactions.
Given scenarios, illustrations, or descriptions, students will identify the process of calorimetry and calculate the heat of a chemical process.
Given scenarios, descriptions, or illustrations, the student will determine the properties of water that affect chemical and biological systems.
Producing Plump Produce
In collaborative groups, the students investigate the transport of water within potato cells placed in various tonicity solutions.
In this lesson, students will investigate how gene expression is a regulated process controlled by DNA and the interpretations of codons through translation.
Types of Motion
Students will distinguish between and/or interpret the types of motion.
Types of Science Investigations
Students will distinguish between descriptive, comparative, and experimental investigations.
Given investigation scenarios and lab procedures, students will identify independent variables, dependent variables, constants, and control groups.
Plant, Parts, and Function
Students use prior knowledge of body systems as they make connections to systems in plants. Students learn that some plant systems have similar functions as the respective animal systems. The lesson highlights the following systems in plants: root system, shoot system, vascular system, and reproductive system.
Question and Purpose
Given laboratory investigation scenarios, students will determine the question or purpose of the procedure.
Given a series of statements, students will determine if statements are testable hypotheses and determine the hypothesis that best fits a given procedure.
Given laboratory investigation scenarios, students will distinguish between scientific hypotheses and scientific theories.
Given field and laboratory scenarios and laboratory data, students will construct data tables and graphs, using repeated trials and means to organize data.
Given laboratory investigation data in the form of tables, charts, and graphs, students will analyze and predict trends from the data.
Conclusions and Scientific Explanations
Given laboratory investigation data, students will determine the best conclusion based upon that data.
