    Dinosaur Evolution Project
    Published by NGSS Life Science. Lesson Plan (PDF)

    Lesson Plan (DOCX) with Membership
     
    Project
    Students pretend to evolve a dinosaur using Darwin's principles of evolution and watch how the dinosaur adapts to an environmental change. This is a very comprehensive project including natural selection, adaptations, chromosome and point mutations, gene pools, isolation, Mendel genetics, protein synthesis, fossils, ecology, competition,and speciation.

    Cell Cycle Flipbook
    Published by NGSS Life Science. Lesson Plan (PDF)

    Lesson Plan (DOCX) with Membership
     
    Project
    Students learn about the cell division by creating a paper flipbook animation including interphase, mitosis and cytokinesis. This project can easily be converted into a meiosis flip book.

    Human Body Wanted Poster
    Lesson Plan
     
    Project
    Students will create a to create a "Wanted" poster about an organ. Students will research an organ system contains your organ, the organ's main functions, ow does your organ works with other systems to keep the body healthy, which diseases or disorders affects your organ, and can a person live without the organ.
