Hybrid Organisms Genetics Activity
This hands-on genetic engineering activity will engage and excite your students as they create real hybrids in the classroom. After students have reviewed hybridization and selective breeding, students will use the cards to determine the advantages and possible disadvantages of hybrid organisms like the beefalo, grolar bear, mule, peppermint, loganberry, and more. Students complete the hybrid crosses using the mix-up cards for each match and fill in the graphic organizer for each union

How to Effectively Use Interactive Notebooks
Teacher-tested tips for effectively using interactive notebooks in secondary science classrooms - Getting Nerdy Science
Dichotomous Key Practice
Students practice using dichotomous keys by classifying imaginary creatures, then designing their own organisms and creating a dichotomous key to be tested by another classmate. STUDENTS WILL: * Practice creating a key by dividing imaginary creatures by their visible traits. * Demonstrate their understanding by creating their own creatures with various traits and key to identify them. * Pass the key off to another student to test the key for a self-assessing lesson!
Science Interactive Notebook - Cells Organelles & Processes
Engage your students with over 30 Interactive Notebook activities for all of your cell unit needs. Our flippers will have your kids "flipping" their way to learning all about cell organelles and cell processes. Use these activities as stand-alone lessons or as a supplement to our Cells Unit Bundle. Disseminate these lessons as you see fit through creating a PowerPoint, in a class discussion or as small group activities. The possibilities are endless!
Protist Poster Project
Students use their knowledge of kingdom protista - plant-like, animal-like and fungus-like protists to create a miniature poster. Students are assigned a protist or may choose their own. Then, they research the answers to specific questions about that protist and create an informational poster to share with the class. Students must also correctly place the organism in the correct protist category.
Virus Lab - Epidemic Simulation
In this classification activity, students simulate a virus epidemic lab using a party scenario and virus and vaccine stickers. STUDENTS WILL: * Simulate a school party where several students are "infected" with the stomach virus. * Simulate what happens when members of the population become vaccinated against the illness. * Analyze their results, graphing their data in their student response sheet Great way to discuss influenza and covid-19/corona virus
Fetal Pig Vinyl Dissection - Scienstructable 3D Dissection Model
Our vinyl models are FINALLY here! Pig anatomy just got a little more interesting with our innovative vinyl dissection models that mirror our student paper models. In the digital version, students color, cut, and assemble their own foldable, dissectible specimens. In addition to the immediately accessible digital content, you also receive one larger-than-life vinyl pig model that you punch out and easily assemble.
