Beaks as Tools

Jason Crean describes how he uses BioInteractive's "Beaks as Tools" activity to supplement understanding of Rosemary and Peter Grant's research on the evolution of the Galápagos finches.

Finding the Crater

Bernice O'Brien describes how she uses the "Finding the Crater" activity to allow her students to build scientific claims from real-world evidence.

Human Skin Color: Evidence for Selection

Helen Snodgrass describes how she uses BioInteractive's The Biology of Skin Color film and "Evidence for Selection" activity to show students how humans have evolved over time.

The Origin of Birds

Valerie May explains how she uses the BioInteractive short film Great Transitions: The Origin of Birds, along with its related activities, with her students. She also notes that many of BioInteractive's resources align to NGSS standards.

Lactose Intolerance and Genetics

Robin Bulleri describes how she uses the Got Lactase? short film, along with the "Inheritance of Lactose Intolerance" activity, to show her students how lactase persistence arose and how pedigrees and DNA analysis reveal patterns of inheritance of lactase gene variants.

The Beak of the Finch

Samantha Johnson describes how she uses the short film The Origin of Species: The Beak of the Finch to demonstrate to her students how quickly selective pressure can affect a population, as well as to show that not all science is done indoors.

The Day The Mesozoic Died

Chris Monsour describes how he uses the short film The Day The Mesozoic Died in his classroom. The film illustrates the scientific process, showing the evidence that led to the hypothesis that an asteroid impact killed the dinosaurs.

Phylogenetic Trees Click and Learn

Paul Strode describes the BioInteractive Click & Learn activity on DNA sequencing and phylogenetic trees. He explains how it teaches students about DNA sequence alignment, and how those sequence differences allow researchers to determine relationships between species.

Rock Pocket Mouse Resources

Ann Brokaw presents three BioInteractive resources she uses to support the short film Natural Selection and Adaptation. The activities focus on the Mc1r gene, protein, and receptor.

Sorting Finch Species

Cindy Gay describes using two BioInteractive resources to teach her students about evolution. She first shows them the short film The Beak of the Finch, which describes research by biologists Peter and Rosemary Grant on the Galápagos finches.
