Photosynthesis

This multipart animation series explores the process of photosynthesis and the structures that carry it out.

Why Two Heads?

This activity explores images of planarians regenerating missing body parts, which serve as phenomena for learning about cell division and differentiation.

Coral Bleaching

This animation zooms into a coral reef to explore the tiny animals that build reefs, the photosynthetic algae inside their cells, and the damaging process of coral bleaching.

Investigating Planarian Behavior and Regeneration

This activity allows students to observe their own planarian and then design an experiment to investigate how planarians regenerate. It supports viewing of the video Identifying Key Genes in Regeneration.

Tissue Regeneration in Animals

This tutorial describes how animals differ in their abilities to heal wounds and regenerate lost body parts or damaged tissues.

Planarian Regeneration and Stem Cells

This video discusses the remarkable regenerative capabilities of the planarian, and how biologist Alejandro Sánchez Alvarado uses them to study the biology of stem cells.
