Dimensional Analysis: The Feast That Inspired Thanksgiving (Factor / Label Method)

(0)
Thanksgiving is a difficult time of year with students excited for vacation. Here is a great no-prep activity for secondary science students which will allow them to compete against each other and the clock while reviewing their skills solving problems using dimensional analysis. I love this activity because it keeps my students critically thinking and working together. In this problem set are seven multi-step problems with questions, a student guide sheet with some conversions and a detailed teacher's Key with how to set up the problems and the answers. Although geared towards Thanksgiving, this a great activity to brush up student math skills in Science any time of year!
Genetic Disorders / Mutations: Karyotype Problem Sets Worksheets

Genetic Disorders / Mutations: Karyotype Problem Sets Worksheets

(0)
I have bundled two versions of this genetic disorders worksheets. They both cover the same chromosomal diseases but one is short answer and the other asks the students to describe the disease symptoms. In both sets the students are given 8 karyotypes that they need to identify by gender and figure out what chromosomal abnormalities are in each. The students can then take that information and research it online or at a library to find the syndrome's name and symptoms (long answer set). The teacher key is included for both. The students worksheets are five pages long since they include an introduction in each set. The teacher keys are four pages long for each set. The picture file is just for advertising.*
Symbiosis Word Wall Coloring Sheets (6 pages)

Symbiosis Word Wall Coloring Sheets (6 pages)

(0)
Coloring pages have recently become a huge hit all over the world. In my new series of word wall coloring pages, you can bring the excitement of coloring into your middle school and high school science classrooms. This set includes the words: symbiosis, endosymbiosis, mutualism, commensalism, predation, and parasitism. Word Walls are an instructional tool used primarily in the elementary classroom. While teaching in Texas my administrators decided they wanted secondary teachers to use the tool as well. It was a great success on many levels. Students took time learning about their word and creating a design for it. I always displayed all the words and the students took great pride in seeing their work displayed. The students also enjoyed looking at each other’s work. I noticed over time that my students would frequently look at the wall while we working. Especially during pop quizzes or bell work. The word wall truly helped my students to remember their vocabulary words and seeing them displayed all the time in class made it easier for them to refresh their memory when necessary. Each word wall poster has a word wall art graphic that students can color. There is a designated box to write the scientific definitions, synonyms or examples, antonyms or nonexamples and space to write a sentence using the word. I developed word wall coloring pages for my students who struggled with what to draw and write when working on word walls. I always offer a blank template for my self-motivated artists, but the coloring pages allowed my students who struggle with a means for creating a beautiful piece of word wall art as well. My favorite way to use word walls includes after a test, to introduce new vocabulary in a relaxing format, sub work or as extra credit. They are also a fun way to revisit words student’s struggle with. In your file, you will receive the word wall word/words you purchased plus the blank template. Please feel free to tag me on Instagram (@MizzzFostersClass) to show off your students’ work.

This power point has 16 symbiotic scenarios. The students are to read each slide and analyze the pictures in order to choose which symbiotic level is depicted. The fours symbiotic relationships presented are endosymbiosis, commensalism, predation, parasitism and mutualism. I usually have my students work with a partner. It is a lot of fun to hear them talk about each situation using educational dialogue. This is an excellent follow up activity after the Symbiosis Power point to make sure the students understand the difference relationships.

Periodic Table: Graphic Organizer, Fold-Out Foldable, Interactive Notebook

(0)
This Periodic Table Graphic Organizer is designed for Interactive notebooks in a secondary science class. Students will look at the different parts of the periodic table and list the characteristics of metals, nonmetals and metalloids (semi-metals). Students will color a 119-element periodic table according to groups such as Alkaline metals, Halogens and nonmetals. Students will also cover periodic trends such as electronegativity, atomic radii, ionic radii and ionization. EXCELLENT FOR ANY STATE!!! Texas Chemistry TEKS (5) Science concepts. The student understands the historical development of the Periodic Table and can apply its predictive power. The student is expected to: (A) explain the use of chemical and physical properties in the historical development of the Periodic Table; (B) use the Periodic Table to identify and explain the properties of chemical families, including alkali metals, alkaline earth metals, halogens, noble gases, and transition metals; and (C) use the Periodic Table to identify and explain periodic trends, including atomic and ionic radii, electronegativity, and ionization energy. Next Generation Science Standards HS-PS1-1. Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.

Population Genetics: Selection, Isolation, Speciation Power Point
mizzzfostermizzzfoster

Population Genetics: Selection, Isolation, Speciation Power Point

(1)
The population genetics power point covers the mechanisms of how species evolve over time. It begins with an overview of Hardy-Weinberg and then delves into genetic flow, genetic drift, bottleneck effect, founder's effect, the types of selection, the types of isolation and the types of speciation. The power point is filled with examples of the mechanisms and pictures, graphs and charts to help emphasize the concepts. The concepts are heavy within population genetics so I would advise to chunk the information up into segments instead of teaching them all the way through in one day.

Cells: Prokaryotes, Eukaryotes, Virus Writing Task Cards

(0)
It is important to promote writing across the disciplines. Sometimes it is difficult to come up with writing prompts. These task cards are specific to secondary science and they cover cells. There are writing prompts for the prokaryotes, eukaryotes, viruses, cell membrane, organelles, cellular processes, and osmosis. I have included the prompts in the power point format and pdf file format so you can choose which file you would like to use. By adjusting the page settings during printing you can print 6 or more / less prompts per page. This activity can be used as a bell ringer, pop quiz or closing. It is a good exercise to make the brief students write longer and the novel writers write shorter answers. There are 42 writing prompts with instructions as to how many sentences they should write. You can edit the power point file to adjust the sentence requirements.
