Cycle of Life 2: Food Webs
This lesson gives students the opportunity to learn about food chains. Cycle of Life 2: Food Webs extends this thinking by focusing on how some insects depend on dead plant matter for food and incorporates ideas previously learned about food chains and food webs. Grades 3-5
Cycle of Life 1: Food Chain
Cycle of Life 1: Food Chains focuses on the food chain by helping students understand that almost all kinds of animals' food can be traced back to plants and that the sun is the ultimate source of energy needed for all organisms to stay alive and grow. Grades 3-5
A Mendel Seminar
Learn about Gregor Mendel's discovery of a process of biological evolution: how recessive and dominant traits are passed from one generation of living organisms to the next. Grades 9-12
Coping with Changes
From Science NetLinks.com. A project of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Students learn how nervous systems cope with changes in environment. Grades 6-8
Germs and the Body
This lesson explores germs, where they exist, and how they can affect the body. It also deals with a possible misconception that students of all ages may have--that factors important to health are beyond their personal control. In learning about bacteria and germs, students will also learn about preventative measures they can take to stay healthy. Grades 3-5
Pond 1: Pond Life
Students investigate familiar and unfamiliar ecosystems using Internet resources, explore how various organisms satisfy their needs within their environments, and study the kinds of relationships that exist between organisms within an environment. Grades 3-5
Pond 2: Life in a Drop of Pond Water
Students investigate the living creatures in a drop of pond water under magnification. Grades 3-5
How a Blue Crab Changes as It Grows
Classification 1: Classification Scheme
Classification 1: Classification Scheme is intended to supplement students' direct investigations by using the Internet to expose students to a variety of living organisms, as well as encourage them to start developing classification schemes of their own. Grades 3-5
Classification 2: A Touch of Class
Classification 2: A Touch of Class extends this thinking by exposure to the idea that a variety of plants and animals (organisms) can be classified into one or more groups based on the various characteristics of a specific group. Grades 3-5
Cells 1: Make a Model Cell
Students will compare a plant and animal cell and then make a model of a cell. Grades 6-8
Cells 2: The Cell as a System
Cells 2: The Cell as a System encourages students to view the cell as a system. Grades 6-8
Cracking the Genetic Code
Students understand what the knowledge of DNA can tell us about ourselves and other organisms and species. Students will also learn about the systematic study of the human genome. Grade 9-12
Students will examine a fictional pedigree and determine which gene is responsible for a given trait. The genetic information for individuals is depicted as a jigsaw puzzle. Terms that students will encounter include gene; chromosome; DNA; pedigree; genotype; phenotype; dominant; and recessive.. Grades 6-8
