    Activity
    This activity is inquiry based where students mimic chromosome mutations by cutting and pasting paper chromosomes. Students then use this activity to defend a claim that inheritable variations can be caused by mutations.

    Cell Size - Surface Area Activity
    Lesson Plan
     
    Activity
    This unit is an integration of important geometry, biology, and technology skills. The students will be using spreadsheet programs to solve problems relating surface area to volume ratios. Students will use cell models to observe the effect of increasing surface area to volume ratios on cell growth and functioning.

    Coral Reef Detectives: “Who Done It?”
    Lesson Plan
    Alternative Lesson Plan
     
     
    Activity
    Students try to solve a mystery of the disappearing seahorse babies. Student learn about the suspects: tilapia, lionfish and turtle. Then students will fill out a chart about the suspects that will give clues about who had the seahorse babies for supper. At the end, students share their finding and vote to determine who was the guilty party. This webquest is a modified version of the forest animal mystery, which is listed as the second lesson plan.

  • Class Activity
    Experience Deep Time & Earliest Fossils
    Lesson Plan
     
    Activity
    Students gradually build a realistic sense of deep, geological time from familiar linear analogs, e.g. calendars and football fields. Students also learn to associate the earliest fossils of specific groups of vertebrates with the geologic time of their emergence, on the now-familiar scale of relative distances from their school. From this, students discover the pattern of gradual vertebrate emergence and how well it consistently fits vertebrate phylogeny.
