Grades 9-12. Enliven the concepts of biology with these demonstrations! With more than 200 demonstrations, this book aims to supplement standards-based curriculum and serve as engaging launching pads for lessons by offering concrete visualization of abstract concepts. Because of the constraints imposed by organisms, some of the demos are extended and require from a day to a few weeks to unfold. However, all of the entries aim to satisfy the basic value of demonstration. That is, they fill only a brief portion of any given class period. Also, there are limitations on time and material resources that preclude the teaching of every concept with student hands-on participation. Some of the topics include: Process of Scientific Inquiry and Safety, Chemistry of Biology, Kinetics of Biology: Enzymes, Cells: Structure, Function, and Division, DNA and Biotechnology, Diversity of Life: Microorganisms, and Ecology and Environmental Issues. 300 pages, spiralbound.
