Creating Voki to Describe the Digestive System
Students will create a digital presentation using a Voki on the digestive system, organs, and accessory structures. This is a part of the unit on digestion and metabolism, and is performed at the beginning of the unit with additional content afterwards, especially on metabolism, nutrition, and digestive disorders. It involves the use of technology to research, create, and display a presentation. It may be completed individually or in small groups. This is a College- and Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.

From Cell to DNA
This tool, created by Science NetLinks, features an animation that takes students through a tour of a typical human cell, moving from larger to smaller cell structures. It briefly describes some of these structures and describes how DNA strands are constructed. While this page links to the overview of the tool for grades 9-12, you can access reviews for additional grades and benchmarks using the navigation tools at the top of the overview.
In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, students use iteration, recursion, and algebra to model and analyze a changing fish population. They work to find additional equations and formulas to represent the data.
