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.
In this lesson, students will investigate how gene expression is a regulated process controlled by DNA and the interpretations of codons through translation.
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.
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.
The learner explores the structure and function of the nucleic acids and enzymes important to the process of synthesizing proteins.
Learners compare a variety of prokaryotes and eukaryotes to determine similarities and differences among and between them.
Mechanisms of Evolution Beyond Natural Selection
Learners analyze and evaluate the effects of other evolutionary mechanisms.
Evidence for Evolution
Learners analyze and evaluate how evidence of common ancestry among groups is provided by the fossil record, biogeography, and homologies, including anatomical, molecular, and developmental.
Introduction to Plate Tectonics
This resource is intended to use for Tier I classroom instruction.
This resource can be used, in conjunction with best practices, for Tier I classroom instruction.
Energy and Matter in Cells
Learners compare changes in matter that take place during energy conversion processes such as photosynthesis and cellular respiration.
Energy and Matter in Ecosystems
Learners analyze food chains, webs, and pyramids to determine how energy flows and matter cycles through ecosystems.
The Role of Enzymes
Learners investigate the role of enzymes at the molecular level as well as through “real-world” applications.
Introducing the Atom
A resource to be used for Tier I instruction for the introduction of the structure of atoms.
Learners explore and describe how succession affects biodiversity by creating an island ecosystem in an interactive game.
