  • Central Dogma Card Activity

    Central Dogma Card Activity

    Card Activities

    In this hands-on activity students review the steps of eukaryotic gene expression and learn how this knowledge can be used to treat genetic disease.

  • What van Leeuwenhoek Saw

    What van Leeuwenhoek Saw

    Card Activities

    This hands-on activity helps students understand concepts related to building scale models by using cards of microorganisms and cells that were first visualized by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek.

  • Natural Selection and the Evolution of Darwin's Finches

    Natural Selection and the Evolution of Darwin's Finches

    Card Activities

    In this activity, students develop arguments for the adaptation and natural selection of Darwin’s finches. Students use two key NGSS science and engineering practices: engaging in argument from evidence using mathematical and computational thinking, and analyzing and interpreting data.

  • Look Who's Coming for Dinner: Selection by Predation

    Look Who's Coming for Dinner: Selection by Predation

    Card Activities

    In this activity, students formulate a hypothesis and collect and analyze real research data about how quickly natural selection can act on specific traits in a population as a result of predation. It is a accompanied by a short video that describes the experiment this activity is based on.

  • Mapping Genes to Traits in Dogs Using SNPs

    Mapping Genes to Traits in Dogs Using SNPs

    Card Activities

    In this activity, students identify single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that are correlated with different traits in dogs to identify genes associated with those traits.

  • Using DNA to Explore Lizard Phylogeny

    Using DNA to Explore Lizard Phylogeny

    Card Activities

    In this activity, students explore the phenomenon of convergent evolution presented in the short film The Origin of Species: Lizards in an Evolutionary Tree. They build and interpret phylogenetic trees to infer how certain adaptations evolved among the Anole lizard populations of the Caribbean.

  • Finding the Crater

    Finding the Crater

    Card Activities

    This hands-on activity requires students to “visit” different K-T boundary sites.
