Evaluating Science in the News

In this activity, students evaluate a science news article to determine whether it is a trustworthy source of information.

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.

Developing an Explanation for Tuskless Elephants

This activity builds on information presented in the video Selection for Tuskless Elephants. Students use scientific evidence and reasoning to construct an explanation of and develop an argument for tusklessness in elephant populations.

Cancer Cell Invasion

This activity explores an image of tumor cells invading muscle tissue, which serves as a phenomenon for learning about cancer, mutations, and cell division.

Using Images as Phenomena

This hands-on activity engages students in asking questions about phenomena using collections of images.

Role of p53 in the Cell Cycle

This activity analyzes a published scientific figure from a study that investigated the role of p53 in cell cycle regulation.

Benefits of Schools

This activity explores images of animals that live in groups, which serve as phenomena for learning about animal behavior.

Developing an Explanation for Mouse Fur Color

In this activity, students collect and analyze evidence for each of the major conditions for evolution by natural selection to develop an explanation for how populations change over time.

Niche Partitioning Activity

In this activity, students make claims about different niche partitioning mechanisms based on scientific data.
