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.*

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!

Cryptozoology Dichotomous Key: Monsters, Spooks, And Ghouls

(1)
This Cryptozoology Dichotomous Key is a great secondary science Halloween activity or end of year wrap up when the AP Biology or state exams finish. We all know how antsy high school students get when Halloween comes around. You can keep them entertained with taxonomy over monsters, beasts, mythological creatures and strange diseases. This dichotomous key is a mixture of reality and myth. Students are given 25 organisms they need to identify. I also included two suggestions for extension activities. I usually use this as a cooperative lesson with my students paired up so they can work the dichotomous key together. I upload the power point to the class website and have my students work with a partner on a laptop.It is a lot of fun to hear them talk about each situation using educational dialogue. This is also a good activity for flipped classrooms. If you do not have a set of classroom laptops or ipads you can also print the power point slides and place small groupings around the room and turn it into a centers activity. You could also print the slides out as class sets.

Virus Bundle: Power point and Graphic Organizer Foldable

(0)
Viruses often boggle young students' minds. They are not living so can not be called dead. This power point and graphic organizer go over the reasons viruses are not categorized as living, explains their methods for reproduction, the lytic and lysogenic cycles. HIV reproduction in the human body is covered in detail along with the five drugs used in its treatment. Students are prompted to write about it in the foldable as well. There are a few slides dedicated to Ebola / Marburg, why they are hard to find and how the primate population of the world is being affected. The latest Zika virus is also presented and why it is detrimental to developing babies in the womb. Multiple common viruses are also displayed and described. Students will be able to distinguish viruses from living things and understand their methods of reproduction. Students will also be able to identify viruses based on their structure. Students will also understand that viruses infect all forms of life. Students can write about common viruses in the foldable. The power point and foldable can be presented separately or together. Teacher key included.

Scientific Investigation Word Wall Coloring Sheets (7 pages)

Scientific Investigation Word Wall Coloring Sheets (7 pages)

(2)
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: hypothesis, experiment, constant, variable, data, research, and a blank document for student-designed words. 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.
