Im Zentrum Madrids strömten wieder vor allem jugendliche Demonstranten auf den seit Anfang der Woche besetzten Platz der Puerta del
Developed for third and fourth grade. Students will be given the opportunity to use mathematics to make their own "outrageous ooze" through measuring cornstarch and water. They will use their senses to hypothesize what element "outrageous ooze" is (solid or liquid). Then, they will use scientific observations and methodology to complete a handout and have a "conclusion discussion" about what the ooze is and how it works.

Molecular Genetic Analysis in Yeast
This resource is a detailed laboratory exercise demonstrating the basic techniques used in genetic transformation of yeast using plasmids.
Population Genetics and Evolution: A Simulation Exercise
A simulation laboratory exercise to demonstrate population genetics concepts.
Pungency Assessment in Onions
This resource is a detailed manual of protocols and instructional information for carrying out an undergraduate laboratory exercise in plant biology, horticulture, and plant physiology, including student outlines, instructors notes, and suggested questions for laboratory reports.
Using Crustaceans to Illustrate the Principles of Osmoregulation, Acid/Base Balance, and Respiratory
Although intended for third or fourth year students in physiology, the exercises are adaptable to first or second year zoology and biology courses. Blood and tissue samples are easy to obtain without sacrificing the animal and the placement of electrodes for chronic recording of gill bailer and heart beats is relatively easy.
The Use of Echosounding Equipment in Limnology and Ecology Classes
This exercise demonstrates the use of commercially available echo sounding equipment as a tool in ecological studies which are appropriate for class field projects.
Polluted Air = Polluted Lungs
To gain a better understanding of the roles and functions of components of the human respiratory system and our need for clean air, students construct model lungs that include a diaphragm and chest cavity. They see how air moving in and out of the lungs coincides with diaphragm movement. Then student teams design and build a prototype face mask pollution filter. They use their model lungs to evaluate their prototypes to design requirements.
How Clean is that Water?
This lesson plan helps students understand the factors that affect water quality and the conditions that allow for different animals and plants to survive. Students will look at the effects of water quality on various water-related activities and describe water as an environmental, economic and social resource. The students will also learn how engineers use water quality information to make decisions about stream modifications.
Hercules and the 12 Labors (3:55)
The tale of the mighty Hercules, son of Zeus, atoning for the murder of his family by undertaking 12 impossible tasks. These labors of Hercules should hold the attention of students. However, there is a great deal of death involved in the challenges. Many lessons are possible with this video from the importance of not giving up to the world's first super hero.
