Understanding Genetics

-A curious adult from Canada December 7, 2011 This is a great question and probably one that a lot of people would be curious about. The quick answer is that the odds are pretty close to 100% that you have DNA from your great, great, great

Miniature Science Fairs

This activity could have easily gone into student notebooks but I had students take them home to help them prepare for our science fair. Students were involved in a classroom experiment and then had to create miniature science boards and lab books that mimicked what was being asked of them when they turned in their actual science fair boards (from what page contains what information in the lab book to the placement of pictures and graphs on the board). It was really a fun project and the…

Photosynthesis with M&M's. After learning the photosynthetic equations students put their knowledge to work building the molecules in the equation out of M&M's. Students are also reminded of the Law Conservation of Mass. Link to lesson provided.

Biology Interactive Notebooks

Interactive Notebooks? Warm-Ups? Bell Ringers? Exit Slips? Whatever you want to call them, they are a great classroom management tool and a wonderful way to teach, review, and reinforce vital concepts in biology. A few days ago I wrote a lengthy blog post about my success in using "warm-ups" for my biology classes last year. Click this link to see that blog post. In this post I described the materials I used in my first unit of the school year. This blog post is about my second set of…

Biology Just-in-Time #3

We hosted the third Just-in-Time (JiT) session for the high school biology teachers in our district today. The topics included photosynthesis and respiration. Click here or scroll down to an earlier post to read an overview of the JiT Science workshops we offer. The biology teachers were led through various activities that they could, for the most part, immediately take back to their campus and implement. The activities included hands-on manipulatives, lab investigations, and creating…

An Engineering and Inquiry Lab to teach mitosis-- looks really exciting! Can't wait to try this out next time I teach cell division! TAKE A CLOSER LOOK Science Cells, Science Biology, Teaching Biology, Science Education, Life Science, Cell Biology, Science Labs, Biology Teacher, Mad Science

Engineering Cell Division - a NGSS lesson

My passion right now is inquiry and really trying to develop labs that emphasize THINKING processes, getting kids to ask good questions and finding ways to answer them. I am also using the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) to reframe how I teach. For example; for years, I have used the traditional "hands-on lab" of pipe cleaners to teach mitosis and cell division. With the new standards the focus is not on rote memorization of the phase names. Check out HS standard HS-LS1-4. HS-LS1-4…
