What is a stem cell?

A stem cell is a cell with the unique ability to develop into specialised cell types in the body. In the future they may be used to replace cells and tissues that have been damaged or lost due to disease.

Science Skills: Using Graphic Organizers to Master Science Information

We all know that the volume of information in a science textbook is overwhelming for many of our students. Take time at the beginning of the school year to teach some simple skills to help your students learn to organize the information into a manageable form. We have a saying in my classroom: "Be the master of the information. Do not let the information master you." With just a little direction students can learn a few techniques that will help them master the information all year long…

Measuring the Rate of Cellular Respiration

What is the rate of respiration in these germinating seeds? Many biology teachers tell me that they dread teaching photosynthesis and respiration to their students. Since I love teaching these concepts, I always ask why they feel this way. Responses include: "My students think it is boring. It is too abstract for the students to understand. There is too much chemistry involved. There aren't any good labs to do." I would have to disagree with all of these statements. Photosynthesis and…

Plant Science Lessons and Resources

When the sun starts moving from east to west in the sky, the east side of the stem of a sunflower plant grows MORE rapidly than the west side. Due to this unequal growth on either side, the flower tends to bend in the direction of the sun.

The growth and development of a plant is one of the most spectacular events in nature. Yet, because it happens so slowly, over the course of days or weeks, it is difficult to observe in real time. Watch this video from NOVA: "The Shape of Things", which depicts plant growth in time-lapse format. Students can observe in just a few seconds some of the most important life stages of a plant, from germination to the formation of a flower, and several phases in between.
