Science Classroom

Internet Lessons • The Organ Trail - Challenge your students to create a "Wanted" poster about an organ. Organelle Wars. The Mudslinging Cell Campaign Task List - Ms. Menard's 2013 Honors Biology. The rumors, accusations, and chest pounding resounded throughout the community of Cellutopia.

The Mudslinging Cell Campaign Task List - Ms. Menard's 2013 Honors Biology

Organelles, though normally an organized group working together well, are currently a fragmented group. It seems that certain organelles had the notion that they were more important or performed a m ore important function than other fellow organelles. "If it wasn't for us, you couldn't exist", shouted the mitochondria. Organelle Fakebook project. The Mudslinging Cell Campaign Task List - Ms. Menard's 2013 Honors Biology. Cell as a Factory. Cells unit - Collaborative Curriculum of AERO Science Teachers. Engineering Cell Division - a NGSS lesson. My passion right now is inquiry and really trying to develop labs that emphasize THINKING processes, getting kids to ask good questions and finding ways to answer them.

Engineering Cell Division - a NGSS lesson

I am also using the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) to reframe how I teach. For example; for years, I have used the traditional "hands-on lab" of pipe cleaners to teach mitosis and cell division. With the new standards the focus is not on rote memorization of the phase names. Check out HS standard HS-LS1-4. News. 11/1/2003 - Judith A.


Scheppler, Nan Sethakorn, and Susan Styer A modified version of the Kirby-Bauer assay becomes a vehicle for inquiry-based science when students choose what substances to test for antimicrobial properties. This procedure can be used for guided and authentic inquiry and provides students opportunities to design experiments, draw original conclusions, and present their results.
