Role-playing the parts of chromosomes and centrioles, learners use large chromosome models and nylon cords (spindle fibers and cell membranes) to walk through the processes of mitosis and meiosis.
In this laboratory experiment, learners explore how effectively different sunscreens protect yeast cells from damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
In order to examine the random nature of mutations and natural selection, learners "breed" clutches of Egyptian Origami Birds (Avis papyrus) using random number generators (dice and coins) to mutate s
In this activity, learners model directed evolution by making paper fly. Learners construct and fly paper airplanes.
In this activity, learners explore how genetic switches function and the role of genetic switches in the process of evolution.
This guided inquiry three-part activity engages learners in thinking about the mechanism of natural selection by encouraging them to formulate questions that can be answered through scientific investi
