  • Learn the Anatomy of the Eye

    Learn the Anatomy of the Eye

    This labeling activity was designed for remote learners so that students can practice identifying the anatomical structures of the eye. The activity was made with Google slides so that students can move the text boxes to the numbers on the labels. The image of the eye shows major structures, like the cornea, lens, fovea centralis,…

  • Skull Label (remote)

    Skull Label (remote)

    This activity was designed for anatomy and physiology with students working remotely during the 2020 pandemic. Students are given a short overview of the skull during virtual class and then encouraged to watch the Pop Up Biology video which explains the features of the skull (foramen, condyles, process…etc.) The activity is made on google slides…

  • Reinforcement: Cell

    Reinforcement: Cell

    This is a practice worksheet for students who are learning structures found in the cell. A list of terms can be matched with descriptions and definitions. The same terms can be used to label a diagram of an animal cell. I use reinforcement worksheets for review or remediation. I will give students 10 minutes to…

  • Anatomy of the Eye (Coloring)

    Anatomy of the Eye (Coloring)

    The coloring worksheet is intended to help students learn the location of specific parts of the eye, like the cornea, sclera, lens, and retina.

  • Cell Labeling: Simple and Complex

    Cell Labeling: Simple and Complex

    Students practice labeling organelles on a simple model (2D) and a more complex model.   The idea is for students to gain an appreciation for how cell diagrams are created.  They don’t all look alike, and are often artistically created.  Cell organelles tend to follow basic design rules, like the mitochondria will generally look like a…

  • Cell Structures: A Graphic Organizer

    Cell Structures: A Graphic Organizer

    This graphic organizer (concept map) organizes the cell structures around three main parts of the eukaryotic cell: the nucleus, cytoplasm, and cell membrane.

  • Color the Cellular Structures of the Ameba

    Color the Cellular Structures of the Ameba

    This worksheet describes the structures of the unicellular protist known as the ameba.  Though NGSS standards do not require units on protozoans, this can still be a useful exercise for examining how structure relates to function and how single-celled organisms move, consume food, and reproduce. What is the amoeba? An amoeba is a type of…

  • Investigation: Rat Dissection

    Investigation: Rat Dissection

    Provides instructions for dissecting a preserved rat. Students start with the external anatomy, then locate muscles, bones, and then the major organs.

  • Color a Typical Animal Cell

    Color a Typical Animal Cell

    This worksheet requires students to color a drawing of animal cell according to directions, intended as practice or reinforcement for a unit on cell biology.

  • Squid Dissection for Beginners

    Squid Dissection for Beginners

    External and internal anatomy of the squid with directions for dissection and identifying structures.
