|Domains and Kingdoms and Where We Belong!
||This lesson covers the biological taxonomy rank of Domains and Kingdoms for all living things. The lesson has been divided into two separate fun activities for the students: Family Feud and a Scavenger Hunt both involving questions to reinforce the material learned in this lesson. An additional Student Review worksheet is attached to test what the students learned as well as a PowerPoint presentation to introduce the material.
|Don't Feed the Daphnia!
||Students will observe responses to the internal stimulus, hunger. Students will make observations of starved Daphnia prior to feeding, predict how the Daphnia will respond (both physically and behaviorally) to food, and make observations. Finally, students will form questions about another internal or external stimulus they could test with Daphnia.
|Don't Touch Me!
||In this activity, students will learn about the feedback mechanisms that plants use to maintain equilibrium using turgor pressure. Students will use critical thinking and problem solving skills to investigate the turgor response in M. pudica to different stimuli.
|Dress for Success
||This pamphlet discusses the necessity for proper attire in the workplace and at school. A short word search accompanies the pamphlet for reinforcement.
