The Central Dogma: Replication, Transcription, and Translation 5E Lesson
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

Students will participate in a 5E lesson. To ENGAGE, students will connect their understanding of similarities between parent and offspring to the fundamental molecule of life: DNA. To EXPLORE, students will participate in interactives to observe, analyze and summarize how genes are used to create proteins and traits. In the EXPLAIN section, students will take notes on DNA replication and the Central Dogma. To ELABORATE on their understanding of DNA, students will participate in a protein synthesis race (game) to practice transcription and translation. Formative evaluations of students's ability to explain the process of protein synthesis include (1) a protein synthesis and codon practice sheet, (2) a labeling activity, and (3) making a recording that models and explain the process. As an extension, students can apply their understanding of mRNA to explain how the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines work. Finally, int summative EVALUATE, students model replication, transcription, and translation as they build an organism!

Choose Your Own Adventure: Dividing Fractions
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

 Students will be given a division model, mathematical sentence, or practical problem to solve. After solving a problem, they will enter their answer into the Google Form and it will tell them if they got the correct solution.  If they answered incorrectly, they will need to try again to move on.  If they answer correctly, they choose which problem they want to solve next.  This activity is designed so that students will complete 5 problems.

Classification 5E Lesson
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

Students will participate in a 5E lesson on classification. To ENGAGE, students will think about common vs scientific names and interpret relatedness between four species. To EXPLORE, students will watch a clip of their choice from Our Planet and document organisms' defining characteristics. Students create a hierarchy to predict the relatedness of the species. To then learn about classification systems, students will participate in the EXPLAIN activities. Three videos and guided notes are available for students to document their learning. An EVALUATIVE formative assignment Candy Cladogram Drag and Drop is available for students to practice their understanding of phylogenetics. Then, students will ELABORATE on their knowledge by researching the scientific names of the organisms they observed in the Our Planet clip (explore section). Students will evaluate the accuracy of their orginial hierarchy and explain how scientific developments have impacted classification. Additional cladograms are included for students to interpret.

Combination of Transformations Desmos Activity
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

This is an originally created Desmos activity. In this activity, students interact with different screens to perform a combination of transformations. Students will check their work and, upon revealing the answer, will not be able to change their answers. After checking their work, students will justify their creations.

Create Parallel and Perpendicular Lines
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

It is suggested that this activity be used once students have a deep understanding of parallel and perpendicular lines. Students will be given the equation of a line in various forms and based on that information, must drag points on a graph to create parallel and perpendicular lines. Initially students will not be shown the graph of the original line, but can obtain that hint if necessary. Once students submit their solutions on the graph, they can reveal the answer, but will no longer be able to adjust their work. This could be used as an assessment, especially during distance learning.
