“ARE YOU HAVING TROUBLE TEACHING ABOUT SCIENTIFIC VARIABLES?” Look no further. This product has everything you need and a lot more. Variables seem to stay with us as we move into different levels of academics. From Elementary school to College, distinguishing between Independent and Dependent variables always seem to be problematic. This 40 page package will set everything straight. This product includes visually engaging reference cards that dissect each type of variable through interactive activities. With over 20 different experiments, students will have enough repetition to practice and discover the difference between independent and dependent variables in a fun and engaging way. Teachers have used these cards in two dynamic presentation styles. Each card can be used individually. As such, individual cards can be adhered to bulletin boards for quick review. In addition, these cards can be used as activities in small groups or even in an around-the-world station lab. Another style of presentation includes binding all the cards into a classroom reference booklet. The product contains covers so that this booklet can be put together. Teachers like having this booklet and display them in their classroom as this concept is brought up throughout the school year in any science classroom. College professors have used this book to stay focused on the fundamental approach identifying these types of variable. In this package, you get 3 sets of cards. One set includes visually engaging content related to dissecting the different types of variables including Controlled, Independent, Dependent, and Erroneous. Students will apply what they learn through interactive assessments on each card. The second set of cards includes Experimental Problem sets. On each card, the variables are selected for you. Students will have identify the experimental problem only using the variables. This gives good practice identifying which variable depends on another. The third set of cards are the Experiment Set. Students will be exposed to a total of 10 different experiments in which they have to identify the correct variable. Also included in this package is Independent and Dependent hand sign cards. Teacher will give students examples of experiments and students will work together in small teams and raise their Independent/Dependent cards to identify the correct variables. In summary, students love this product and I know you will too for many reasons. Mostly, each card is interactive, visually engaging, and students want to take them home with them; as opposed to tossing them in the trash on the way out the door. If you are familiar with my products, you will continue to see or see firsthand; how these cards will become a permanent educational artifact in your classroom.

You will receive 115 pages of game materials which include 185 playing cards, a visual engaging game board, and detailed instructions which are customizable. Students can’t get enough of this game. They are always asking to play this game daily as I have the game board posted in my classroom. I also play this game at home with friends and my family. It’s a great way to distribute knowledge in your content area to both external and internal family members, especially when you are portraying the evolution debate. The goal of the game is to see what population will survive a total of 30 generations. They will see how species change and evolve first-hand. They will also encounter different factors that affect evolutionary relationships and potent forces that cause specific selecting agents to either happily thrive or sadly go extinct. What students love most about this game is that it is competitive and they love watching other populations go extinct while they continue to survive each generation. Student work together as team within their species. Their competition is driven by the success of their organisms and the conditions of the environment. They learn as they play. A very engaging activity indeed!!!

This lesson will allow students to actually track how DNA was discovered. At each station students will be exposed to a wide spectrum of activities that range from the Fredrick Griffth Experiment (interactive mice activity); Oswald Avery Experiment ( KWL activity as a product of an model activity); Hershey and Chase Experiments (students will actually draw a model of the Hershey and Chase experiment a use a given key to reproduce the experiment); and Structure of DNA activity; students will open doors and see the different scientists responsibled for the discovery of DNA and its structure. This lesson even goes as far as describing the contribution that Rosland Franklin contributed and how Watson and Crick used her data without her permission. I have included the entire expanded lesson plan. You will receive all four lab stations, the entire individual student workpacket, and a student assessment sheet.

Protein Synthesis has never been taught with so much fun until today. Students actually take the role as a translator and transcriber working their way together to decode a secret message. Using the Genetic Code and synthesizing a functional protein is the goal. However, in this activity the final protein product is a secret message. If that message makes sense, the protein is functional. If it doesn’t, a mutation has been discovered. This activity comes full with a complete lesson plan and over 20 pages of cutouts. This activity is both engaging and enticing and the students love working in teams to see if they can bust the code.
