Diving Adaptations in Sea Nomads

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated physiological and genetic adaptations in the Bajau, a group of people who traditionally do freediving.

What van Leeuwenhoek Saw

This activity complements the animated short video Seeing the Invisible. Students explore concepts related to relative size and scale using cards of cells and microorganisms.

Thermoregulation in Dinosaurs

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that explored how dinosaurs may have regulated their body temperatures.

Written in Chalk

This activity explores images of chalk formations and coccolithophores, which serve as phenomena for learning about the interactions between biological and geological processes.

Gorongosa's Water Cycle

This animation illustrates the main stages of the water cycle in Gorongosa National Park, an ecosystem that experiences both wet and dry seasons.

How Did Dinosaurs Regulate Body Temperature?

This activity extends concepts covered in the film The Origin of Birds. Students analyze and interpret data from a scientific paper to explore thermoregulation in living and extinct animals, including dinosaurs.  

Coral Reefs and Global Warming

This activity allows students to use authentic scientific data to make claims about the threat of coral bleaching for reefs around the world.

Interactive Assessment for The Birth and Death of Genes

A number of questions are embedded within the short film The Making of the Fittest: The Birth and Death of Genes, which illustrates how gene duplications and mutations have led to remarkable physiological adaptations in Antarctic fish.

Extreme Life of the Sea

In this talk, marine biologist Stephen Palumbi compares threats to biodiversity in the ocean to threats on land.

Vertebrate Circulatorium

This interactive module explores the circulatory systems of major vertebrate groups to gain insights into their evolution.
