Atmospheric Carbon: Can We Offset the Increase? part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Oceanography:Activities
This activity lets students discover first hand how the big issues in climate change – here, the increase in atmospheric CO2 and the utility of carbon offsets – can be understood through measurement, ...
CCD & Calcareous Ooze Assignment part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Oceanography:Activities
The assignment pre-tests student understanding of the CCD, lysocline, calcareous ooze, and the deposition of marine sediments near mid-ocean ridges and ocean basins.
Determining Carbon Storage in Garcelon Bog part of Integrate:Workshops:Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences:Activities
This is a three-week lab sequence aimed at determining the approximate amount of carbon stored in a local bog and teaching skills for solving complex problems through collaborative work.
Seasonal variation in light, mixing depth and primary productivity in temperate northern hemisphere waters part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Oceanography:Activities

Living Learning Community: Spaceship Earth Research Course part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Freshmen enrolled in the Spaceship Earth Living Learning Community conduct research on a real project that is formulated and conducted during a 2-semester academic year.
Genetic Drift part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Mathematical and Statistical Models Examples
In this biology simulation, students use a mathematical simulation of genetic drift to answer questions about the factors that influence this evolutionary process. Students run a series of simulations varying ...
Allosaur Survival Game part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Games:Examples
In this online computer game, players must figure out how to keep an Allosaurus from starving or being eaten until it grows to adulthood. -
Changing With the Tide part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Role Playing:Examples
This lesson plan is written around a brief role-play in which students learn about and act out plants and animals in a salt marsh habitat as the tides change. -
Timeline of the Early Earth part of Cutting Edge:Online Teaching:Activities for Teaching Online
Students assemble timelines of the early evolution of Earth's atmosphere, lithosphere, biosphere, and hydrosphere by examining data from Archean rocks and minerals.
Deep water circulation and chemistry jigsaw part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Oceanography:Activities
This activity is designed to introduce students to the way in which thermohaline circulation and the biological pump influence the distribution of nutrients, oxygen, carbon, and radiocarbon in the Atlantic vs. ...
Coral Bleaching: Making Our Oceans Whiter part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Role Playing:Examples
This lesson plan deals with coral reefs and the recent crisis of coral bleaching. It suggests that students engage in a role-playing debate about modifying human activity to protect reefs. -
Simple Mendelian Genetics: An interactive lecture using part of Merlot Biology Pedagogic Collection:Interactive Lectures:Examples
An interactive lecture that uses flash animations showing the researcher and their experiments that were used to develop the basic concepts in Mendelian genetics. Includes multiple choice questions students can ...
What Determines Gender in Humans? part of Merlot Biology Pedagogic Collection:Interactive Lectures:Examples
In this activity students examine karyotypes from five individuals to try to identify which chromosomes determine gender in humans. This activity is also a good illustration of meiotic non-disjunction. -
Searching Genbank part of Merlot Biology Pedagogic Collection:Teaching with Data:Examples
An active problem-based assignment that uses the Genbank database to teach the basics of molecular biology and molecular evolution
JiTT-Scientific Method part of Just in Time Teaching:Examples
A "Just in Time Teaching" question about he scientific method with follow-up class room activities and an exam question.
Nervous System part of Merlot Biology Pedagogic Collection:Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
This learning strategy provides discussion and visualizations of the neuron and its function, as well as components and functions of different parts of the nervous system, including the human brain.
Respiratory System part of Merlot Biology Pedagogic Collection:Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
The purpose, components, and functions of the respiratory system are presented in this learning through disussion and visualizations. Participants learn about the nasal cavity, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli.
Plant Anatomy part of Merlot Biology Pedagogic Collection:Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
Tissues and cells of root, stem, and leaf anatomy in both dicots and monocots are investigated in this learning activity.
Plant Water Relations part of Merlot Biology Pedagogic Collection:Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
Plant water relations are presented in this learning activity to help participants understand the components of water potential, explain how water moves through plants, provide examples of plant adaptations to water stress, and have a general understanding of how water potential can be measured.
Digestive System part of Merlot Biology Pedagogic Collection:Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
The digestive system is investigated in this learning activity to help participants learn how food is broken down and prepared for absorption, and list the components of the digestive system as well as their functions. Organs investigated include the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and anus.
