This website would be great for teaching transcription and translation in a living environemnt class. It provides a great visual of an enlarged microscopic level process. I watched majority of these videos in college, and they do a great job of breaking down tough, macroscopic level processes into a more simpler meaning allowing me to better understand the processes. This will not only help college students, but it works for high school students as well.
This website provides terrific review games before a test for many different topics in biology. In school, high school especially, I thoroughly enjoyed review games and they defintely helped me in reatining information. I can definitely use this site for a Living Environment class and all other classes involving Biology.
This site is perfect for guiding students through a frog dissection. Its hard for a teacher to go around to each group dissecting their frog while keeping them all at the same speed. This website provides thorough video on how to dissect a frog in order to view all of its systems. While the students are dissecting, the teacher can put these videos on the projector or TV screen to keep the students working at the same pace while also providing the students with visuals on techniques of how to actually dissect the frog.
This website provides a quick game for students to learn the plant cell. This can be beneficial in a living environment class or even an AP biology class. Sometimes allowing the students to play quick and easy games installs a sense of satisfaction due to the quick success.
This site is prefect for a biology regents class. It provides questions from previous regents exams and provides potential questions as well. This would be great to provide the students with just so they can take advantage of the free regents questions. It can also be an in class review where all the students can answer the questions.
