What Do Living Things Have In Common?

Author(s):

"What is a Living Thing and How Does a Living Thing Respond to Its Environment?" is a unit designed to be taught prior to teaching the adopted FOSS curriculum on life sciences. In this unit students are given time to think about and discuss the fundamental question, "What is a Living Thing?" They are also introduced to a process for planning science investigations on the topic of how different living things interact with their environment.

Drosophila Genetics

Author(s):

The focus of this module is to have students learn and understand basic Mendelian genetics, specifically the inheritance patterns of organisms.  To achieve this goal, students will use Drosophila melanogaster, the common fruit fly. Using Drosophila, students will predict patterns of inheritance of recessive and X-linked recessive mutations and then observe first-hand how these mutations (traits)

What is a Living Thing, and How Does a Living Thing Respond to Its Environment? A lesson series (public version)

Author(s):

"What is a Living Thing and How Does a Living Thing Respond to Its Environment?" is a unit designed to be taught prior to teaching the adopted FOSS curriculum on life sciences. In this unit students are given time to think about and discuss the fundamental question, "What is a Living Thing?" They are also introduced to a process for planning science investigations on the topic of how different living things interact with their environment. The unit ends with students deciding on a testable question, designing an investigation, doing the investigation, collecting data and drawing conclusions. Students then create poster presentations of their investigation for a grade level science fair.

ALternative energy lesson series

Author(s):

A lesson series for grades 4-5 on alternative energy sources.

 

Investigating the types of energy in different objects (lesson one of eight)

Author(s): Ben Engel, Arthur Millius, Lisa Monti and Helen Wong-Lew

Investigating the types of energy in different objects (lesson one of eight)

Class discussion on what energy is and different examples of energy. Instructors write words associated with each type of energy. Students pick an object and classify what energy it has. Students now take turns describing their object and defining what sort of energy it has.

Conversion of energy into different forms (lesson two of eight)

Author(s): Ben Engel, Arthur Millius, Lisa Monti and Helen Wong-Lew

Conversion of energy into different forms (lesson two of eight)

Students investigate flash paper, rubber bands, a mechanical crank, and a radiometer to determine the energy conversion occurring in each.
