  • Flipping Class Makes Time for Inquiry A science teacher explains how she used flipped learning to get the most out of each class period and find time for authentic, engaging learning experiences through inquiry-based labs. View »
  • Seedling Genetics (Soybean or Tomato) From a study of either soybean seedlings or tomato seedlings, students determine that the color alleles involved exhibit incomplete dominance, that the seedlings are segregating in a ratio of 1 green:2 yellow-green:1 yellow, and that the parent plant was yellow-green and heterozygous.

  • Flipping Natural Selection Read how an AP® Biology teacher flipped her natural selection lab, which sparked students’ curiosity and got them as excited about evolutionary concepts as Darwin himself. View »
  • Start Spreading the...Germs! During cold and flu season, use Glo Germ™ to communicate the importance of hand washing to your students. View »
  • Wisconsin Fast Plants® and Product Testing In this inquiry activity, students conduct experiments to determine if a commercial product effects the germination of Wisconsin Fast Plants® seed. In doing so they practice basic science skills including collecting and graphing data, interpreting data, and doing serial dilutions. View »
  • Central Dogma of Biology (DNALC Video) Replication, transcription, and translation are the three major processes that comprise the central dogma for molecular biology. This 3D animation demonstrates those steps as you visualize how the DNA genetic “code” leads to proteins that help us develop and function. View »
  • Fermentation by Yeast A study of fermentation by yeast is an interesting extension of AP® Biology Lab 5 Cell Respiration. View »
  • Three-Point Linkage with Drosophila In this lab students investigate the effects of gene linkage and crossing-over on the inheritance of three traits of Drosophila. They use the data they collect to construct a linkage map of the gene loci. View »
  • Classifying Organisms with Your Students Living organisms get students' attention and are great tools for teaching life science. Here's an activity that introduces students to taxonomy and includes collecting, caring for, and classifying living organisms. View »
  • Carolina's Genetic Corn: Part 1-Pollination In this video, we show you the various varieties of genetically modified corn, and do controlled pollinations. This corn is used in the high school and college level to teach genetics. View »
  • Introduction to Fungi This lab introduces students to the Kingdom Fungi through study of two phyla, the zygomycetes and basidiomycetes. View »
  • Give Two Cents for Genetics In this activity, students simulate a monohybrid cross using a penny. View »
