Lizards in Hurricanes

This activity explores images of anole lizards subjected to strong winds, which serve as phenomena for learning about natural selection and the impacts of extreme climate events.

Lizards in the Cold

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated how anole lizards may adapt to extremely cold temperatures.

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.

Understanding Global Change

This interactive module allows students and educators to build models that explain how the Earth system works. The Click & Learn can be used to show how Earth is affected by human activities and natural phenomena.

Amylase Copy Number and Diet

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated whether there is a correlation between a population’s diet and copies of a certain gene.

Africa's Savanna Ecosystems

In this talk, ecologist Robert Pringle discusses how patterns and processes that occur in the savanna, a globally important biome, illustrate core concepts in ecology.

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.

Vertebrate Circulatorium

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

BCR-ABL: Protein Structure and Function

This tutorial describes the structure and function of the cancer-causing protein BCR-ABL. It also shows how drugs targeting this protein can help treat chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), a cancer of the white blood cells.

Earth Systems Activity

This activity guides students through building a conceptual model of how carbon dioxide affects Earth’s climate.

Paleoclimate: A History of Change

This interactive module examines Earth’s past and present climate, highlighting the effects of two important factors: solar radiation and the composition of the atmosphere.

Greenhouse Effect

This animation provides an overview of the greenhouse effect, a process that warms the atmosphere and surface of Earth.
