Based on a “Carbon Adventures” lesson plan developed by the GK-12 Project at Arizona State University. For details on the original activity, go to (http://gk12.asu.edu/curriculum/life_science/CarbonAdventures/carb_ad.htm).
This series of activities is designed to complement a semester long introductory biology course for non-majors (general education) at a 4 year university. These activities are designed to be used to review material from the week's lecture in an activity-based way that is practical to implement in a section of 25-75 students.
The original course is structured in 3 segments:
How does a brain - less than 3 pounds of wrinkly pink matter - enable a person to sense their environment, think, feel, make decisions, remember things, and control every behavior? This is one of the greatest mysteries of life. For teachers interested in teaching students about the brain and its neurons, here is a set of lesson plans for exploring your brain.
Here's my current syllabus for an introductory college biology course for undergraduates planning on entering elementary teaching. This is NOT your traditionalcollege biology course. The goal of this course is to give students mastery over theconcepts required of K-8 students in California in a hands-on, experiential way.
A great list by subject for videos, including worksheets! The Super Size Me worksheet even has before AND after questions.
