Personal Collection of materials relevent to Science Secondary Students

Authorized users only:


Plants in Motion

Added 11/04/2010
This is an excellent website, that give excellent visuals to aid in teaching about plants. Specifically, I would use this website to teach about germination, photosynthesis, plant growth in general, flowers, and cellular responses. A great way, also, to show ecological cycles. This would be useful in a living environment class.

Implementing the Genetics/Family Tree Unit

Added 11/04/2010
This website outlines a great project to help teach middle schoolers genetics. I especially like how detailed the project materials are; it includes teacher resources, examples of student work, and ways to assess. This could be a fairly large unit project in a class, or downscaled to something smaller.

Connecting Concepts: Cell Biology/Thermodynamics 4: Enzymes

Added 11/04/2010
This is a really fun way of learning about enzymes. It's uses a simluation, where the enzymes are interviewing for a job, and the student's job is to question the enzymes to find the honest one. It's a great way to teach the main points of enzymes, but taking it out of the normal "lab" environment. I would use this when teaching about processes in the body, perhaps as part of the digestion unit in a living environment class.


Added 11/04/2010
This website would be great for teaching the form and function of the organelles within a cell, perhaps within a living environment, or even middle school science class. I especially like how each different organelle has it's own "page", and it also has a quiz with some great questions.

The Biology Project: Cell Biology

Added 11/04/2010
This would be a great resource for students to use to test themselves on many aspects of cell-biology, including mitosis, meiosis, prokaryote vs. eukaryote, cell signaling, and cell makeup. I would likely post this on my website, and direct students to it for review on their own. Also, it would be great to give to parents who want their kids to do more review at home.
