This collection focuses on a rapidly evolving field in which the study of both species-specific and ubiquitous aging mechanisms informs the biological process of aging. Yet the field is not without substantial controversy, differing views arise as we come to understand aging across model systems - from bacteria to humans.

This Science NetLinks lesson, first of a two-part series will show students that many kinds of living things can be sorted into groups in many ways using various features to decide which things belong to which group and that classification schemes will vary with purpose.ContextThis lesson is the first of a two-part series on classification. This lesson is intended to supplement students' direct investigations by using the Internet to expose students to a variety of living organisms, as well as encourage them to start developing classification schemes of their own.

This Science NetLinks lesson explores germs, where they exist, and how they can affect the body. It also addresses a common misconception that students of all ages may have - that factors important to health are beyond their personal control. In studying bacteria, students will also learn preventative measures they can take to stay healthy.

Introduction to Natural Selection
Conditions of Use:

Rating

This lesson is an introduction to natural selection and is suited to any student who is just beginning his or her discovery of evolution. The motivation introduces a species of bird that became (over millions of years) numerous species, through adaptation. The development is a hands-on activity that demonstrates how populations change little by little, generation by generation, due to survival of species that have traits that are beneficial in an environment.

Literacy in Biology
Rating

Literacy is an important aspect of science. To be literate in science means students are able to understand, read, and write in terms of science. This lesson is designed to get students to think critically about real world application. The lesson incorporates technology and Bloom’s highest level of thinking, creativity. Students will learn about writing scientific names of organisms and classifying organisms, how organisms interact with each other and their environment, and the impact of natural disasters.

In this video Paul Andersen explains how biodiversity measures the variety of genes, species, and ecosystems on the planet. Biodiversity provides resources and ecosystem services for humans on the planet. He also explains how biodiversity is decreasing on the planet due to habitat destruction, invasive species, climate change, over harvesting, and pollution. Relevant treaties and laws designed to preserved biodiversity is also included.

The purpose of this Science NetLinks lesson is to explore the Everglades ecosystem using the Internet; to develop an understanding about conservation of resources in the context of the Everglades; explore relationships between species and habitats; and develop an understanding of how human beings have altered the equilibrium in the Everglades. This lesson uses the Internet to explore the Everglades ecosystem using the resources on the Everglades National Park website. It uses the Internet to provide students with experiences that they may not be able to acquire firsthand. The activities are based on the website of the Everglades National Park. This investigation is most appropriate for a 9th or 10th grade biology class.

The purpose of this lesson, from Science NetLinks, is to investigate familiar and unfamiliar ecosystems using Internet resources; to explore how various organisms satisfy their needs within their environments; to study the kinds of relationships that exist between organisms within an environment. In order to learn about the living environment, students should begin by engaging in direct observation of local ecosystems. This investigation is designed to build on the knowledge that students are acquiring as they observe and record their findings. In this investigation, Internet resources allow students to investigate the diverse organisms and environments that can be found in other parts of the world.

In this project, you will explore a real-world problem, and then work through a series of steps to analyze that problem, research ways the problem could be solved, then propose a possible solution to that problem. Often, there are no specific right or wrong solutions, but sometimes one particular solution may be better than others. The key is making sure you fully understand the problem, have researched some possible solutions, and have proposed the solution that you can support with information / evidence.Begin by reading the problem statement in Step 1. Take the time to review all the information provided in the statement, including exploring the websites, videos and / or articles that are linked. Then work on steps 2 through 8 to complete this problem-based learning experience.
