Paper ProteinsAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners use an origami template to design eight amino acids. Learners configure the amino acids to form a protein. Use this activity to introduce proteins and amino acids.
No bones about it!
This is an activity (located on page 3 of the PDF) about the mixture of materials in bone and how they affect its strength.
This is an activity (on page 2 of the PDF under Bone Regrowth Activity) about the two main components of bone - collagen and minerals (like calcium) - and how they each contribute to its flexibility a
Air-filled (Pneumatic) Bone ExperimentsAdd to list Details
Just like birds, some dinosaurs had air-filled (pneumatic) bones, which made the dinosaurs' skeletons lighter.
Protein BraceletsAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners use beads, which represent amino acids, to create protein bracelets. Learners examine the relationship between amino acids and proteins.
Round, Light and Hollow
In this activity about bones (page 12 of PDF), learners investigate and compare the weight-bearing capacity of solid and hollow cylinders.
Bag of Bones
In this activity, learners will use cereal to conduct an experiment and investigate how decreased bone density is related to increased risk of bone fracture.
Dinosaur Bone ExperimentsAdd to list Details
This activity features two connected hands-on activities about dinosaur bones.
