Hosted by the Access Excellence at the National Health Museum, this website features A Walk Through the Gut, a lesson created for high school students by educator VivianLee Ward. This hands-on lesson promotes cooperative learning by directing students to work together as they simulate and analyze the passage of food through the digestive system. Ms. Ward designed this one-hour life sciences lesson for special education and special needs students as well. The site includes short sections on Materials, Procedure / Description of Lesson, Group Questions, and more. (less)

In this online activity, learners role-play as medics, treating a patient with missing organs. Learners select different organs, then drag them into the proper location in the patient's body. System by system, they put the patient back together. When learners set up a free account at Kinetic City, they can answer bonus questions at the end of the activity as a quick assessment. As a larger assessment, learners can complete the Smart Attack game after they've completed several activities. (less)

Alternative Strategies to the Use of Vertebrates in Undergraduate Physiology Labs

There are many reasons to seek alternatives to the use of vertebrates, including cost and concerns with use of vertebrates in undergraduate laboratories. This major workshop explores examples of alternatives, including: a) an exploration of thermoregulation without using animals at all, b) an investigation of actomyosin function and membrane excitation using giant alga, and c) using insects to investigate taste receptors and digestion. This workshop explores the importance of providing good background information to vertebrate processes and connecting the alternative experimental system to homologous physiological processes in vertebrates. Students can appreciate the commonality in biological processes and the importance of underlying physiological principles. (less)

In this four-part activity, learners explore how the body works and the chemistry that happens inside living things. In the first activity about molecule receptors, learners use their sense of smell to identify common substances. Next, learners locate examples of the structures made from different kinds of proteins on their body and cook an egg to examine protein folding. Then, learners dissolve sugar in water to discover the best conditions for the stomach to dissolve food molecules the fastest. Finally, learners test foods for carbohydrates (starch) and lipids (fats). This guide is part of the "Passport to Chemistry Adventure" kit, but the kit is not required to properly facilitate this activity. (less)

In this self-measuring activity, learners observe and record how many times a minute they blink, take a breath, and chew, as well as how many times a minute their heart beats. Learners are encouraged to take and record the same kinds of measurements for family members and friends. The "DId You Know" section offers some facts about how a child's heart rate differs from an adult's. (less)

This issue of Findings introduces Elizabeth Grice, a postdoctoral fellow studying the skin microbiome. She wants to learn how and why bacteria colonize certain places on the body, and she퉌Ís particularly interested in determining differences between bacterial communities on healthy and diseased skin. Grice hopes her work will lead to new insights for treating chronic wounds that are common in people who have diabetes or limited mobility. (less)

In this online game, learners test their knowledge of human anatomy. Learners are presented a mystery image of a body part and use their mouse to select the proper body part from a full size anatomical model (known as "Jerome"). Learners try to match all 10 body parts correctly. Use this activity to review human anatomy and/or introduce learners to the use of anatomical models. (less)
