Altitude, Mountain Ranges, and Lakes 5E Instructional Model Plan

Resource:
Altitude, Mountain Ranges, and Lakes 5E Instructional Model Plan

Students learn about rainshadow/orographic effect by making observations of mountain range and ocean location, direction of prevailing winds, and vegetation on each side of the mountain range in a region that exhibits rainshadow effect. Students then collect temperature and rainfall data from the same region and write an explanation for the climate categories found in the region investigated during the explore phase. Students apply their understanding of the processes that drive by rainshadow effect by explaining why large lakes located in cold climate regions can cause lake snow effect.

Antibiotic Resistance Simulation Lab Activity

Resource:
Antibiotic Resistance Simulation Lab Activity

In this lab, students simulate the development of antibiotic resistance in bacteria.

Apparent Pathway of the Sun 5E Instructional Model Plan

Resource:
Apparent Pathway of the Sun 5E Instructional Model Plan

 

Students learn about apparent pathway of the sun by making observations from a simulator depicting the apparent pathway of the sun and creating a diagram that they use to explain why Longyearbyen, Norway goes months without daylight. Students extend their thinking about apparent pathway of the sun and angle of insolation by creating a diagrammatic model of a solar panel that would optimally harness the energy from the Sun.

Beaks of Finches State Lab

Students learn about the role of adaptations in natural selection through this mandated State Lab.

Bottle Biology Lab

Resource:
Bottle Biology Lab

In this lab, students explore a decomposition in a mini-ecosystem.

Causes Behind Diabetes Resource Index and Anticipation Guide

Resource:
Causes Behind Diabetes Resource Index and Anticipation Guide

An index of resources (print, video, graphics) and a reading anticipation guide that students may use to explore the causes behind the increase in Type 2 diabetes

Cell Comparison Lab

Resource:
Cell Comparison Lab

In this lab, students compare different types of cells.

Cell Theory 5E Instructional Model Plan

Resource:
Cell Theory 5E Instructional Model Plan

In this plan, students explore the notion that all living things are made of cells. This, again, is appropriate moment to address the underlying connections to the history of life on Earth.

Cellular Respiration and Experimental Design 5E Instructional Model Plan

Resource:
Cellular Respiration and Experimental Design 5E Instructional Model Plan

All living organisms, regardless of how they get their own food, need to carry out cellular respiration in order to harness the energy from that food. In this instructional sequence, students will experiment with a very simple organism that carries out cellular respiration, design a new experiment using the same materials, and analyze problems based scenarios based on what they learned. The sequence allows teachers to build in opportunity to focus on Experimental Design, Graphing and Diagramming Skills, in addition to topics in Cellular Respiration.

Cellular Respiration in Yeast and Experimental Design Lab Activity

Resource:
Cellular Respiration in Yeast and Experimental Design Lab Activity

In this lab, students explore factors that impact cellular respiration in yeast, and have the opportunity gain experimental design skills.

Characteristics of Life 5E Instructional Model Plan

Resource:
Characteristics of Life 5E Instructional Model Plan

Students explore the characteristics of life through observing living things, coming up with lists of criteria, and comparing those lists with the criteria in nonfiction texts. The discussion of students' findings may allow teachers to explore the history of life on Earth or preview?in a conceptual way?evolution and the commonalities found across all life.
