ATP The Fuel of Life
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

The goal of this lesson is to introduce students who are interested in human biology and biochemistry to the subtleties of energy metabolism (typically not presented in standard biology and biochemistry textbooks) through the lens of ATP as the primary energy currency of the cell. Avoiding the details of the major pathways of energy production (such as glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation), this lesson is focused exclusively on ATP, which is truly the fuel of life.

Rating
4.0 stars
Overview:

Students will investigate comparative anatomy of organisms - visually, verbally, and kinesthetically - and how these organisms have changed through adaptation and evolution. To meet this objective, each group of students will perform seven independent activities at seven separate stations.

African Lions: Modeling Population Growth - Lesson Plan
Read the Fine Print
Rating
4.0 stars
Overview:

Students examine exponential and logistic growth, identify carrying capacity, distinguish between density-dependent and density-independent limiting factors, apply the population model to data sets, and determine carrying capacity from population data.

Alien Invasion: The Spread of Invasive Species in the United States
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Students investigate factors that limit the spread of invasive species in the United States. They compare the spread and limiting factors of three classes of invasive species - insects, plants, and aquatic invertebrates - through data sets from the National Atlas and readings on invasive species issues. This activity is part of "Investigating Your World With My World GIS," a set of activities designed for use with My World GIS software (which can be downloaded at www.natgeoed/myworldgis) to help students learn key content and practice spatial problem solving.

Allele Frequency (AIG IRP)
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

This activity will best fit when teaching about natural selection and how favored alleles lead to change in species. The activity will further this idea by introducing students to the Hardy-Weinberg Theorem, which uses allele frequency to determine if a population is evolving. The activity can be done with the entire class or as part of a differentiated lesson. This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
