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.
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.
Demonstration and Analysis of Dihybrid Crosses
The students will review related vocabulary, watch the teacher model a dihybrid cross, and then perform a dihybrid cross and answer questions about the outcomes with a partner.
Producing Plump Produce
In collaborative groups, the students investigate the transport of water within potato cells placed in various tonicity solutions.
Energy Transfer in an Ecosystem
All matter contains energy. Energy can be transferred from one object to another. Energy transformation can occur through the conversion of energy from one form to another. Energy is never created nor destroyed; it is always transferred and/or transformed. Students will demonstrate how energy is transformed and transferred in an ecosystem. To do this, students will create energy pyramids by stacking cups that represent organisms and available amounts of energy. Students will graph and analyze the data.
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.
Cell Processes: Photosynthesis
Given descriptions or illustrations, students will identify where the reaction of photosynthesis take place and the process and results of photosynthesis.
Cell Processes: Respiration
Given descriptions or illustrations, students will identify where the reaction of respiration take place and the process and results of respiration.
Equipment for Biology
Given investigation scenarios, students will determine the equipment that best fits the procedure.
Cell Processes: Fermentation
Given descriptions or illustrations, students will identify where fermentation occurs and the results of fermentation.
Disruptions of the Cell Cycle: Cancer
Given illustrations or descriptions, students will identify disruptions of the cell cycle that lead to diseases such as cancer.
Given illustrations, students will distinguish between viral structure and cellular structure.
Given descriptions and illustrations students will identify and describe the methods of viral reproduction.
Given scenarios, illustrations, or descriptions, students will identify major diseases caused by viruses, how viruses cause these diseases, and how the body responds to infection.
Mechanisms of Genetics: DNA Changes
Given illustrations or partial DNA sequences, students will identify changes in DNA and the significance of these changes.
This resource uses video, animation, text, and web-based interactives to help students identify changes in DNA and evaluate the effects of those changes.
Internal Feedback Mechanisms
This resource utilizes videos, investigations, and interactives to help students understand and describe the role of internal feedback mechanisms.
Cell Specialization and Differentiation
Given examples, descriptions, and illustrations, students will be able to describe the role of DNA, RNA, and environmental factors in cell differentiation.
Survival of a Species
Given scenarios, illustrations or descriptions, the student will describe how long-term survival of species is dependent on changing resource bases that are limited.
The learner explores the structure and function of the nucleic acids and enzymes important to the process of synthesizing proteins.
