    Microbe Lab - Biodiversity of Ponds
    Free Lesson Plan
     
    Lab
    Students will observe and record data from 3 samples of pond water. Students will identify organisms (protists, arthropods..etc) and numbers of organisms in each. Students will prepare a report that discusses the biodiversity of each sample.

    Plant Anatomy - Which sex is it?
    Free Lesson Plan
     
    Lab
    Students should, when complete, be able to identify the parts of a flower and tell whether or not the flower has both male and female sex organs (perfect) or just one sex organ (imperfect).

    Photosynthesis Lab - Plant Growth in Light and Dark
    Published by NGSS Life Science. Free Lesson Plan (PDF)

    Lesson Plan (DOCX) & Answer Key with Membership
     
    Lab
    Students will learn how photosynthesis is used by a plant to make sugars by breaking the misconception that photosynthesis is about growing a plant. These sugars are then used to perform cellular respiration to make energy. The sugars are converted into larger molecules like cellulose to help build the structure of plant cells. Students should also recognize that plants grow by cell division.
