What Determines Gender in Humans? part of 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.

Subject: Biology:Molecular Biology, Genetics

Constructing Phylogenetic Trees: The Whippo Story part of Examples
An interactive lecture in which students use data on feeding habits and habitat, skeletons, and DNA sequences to draw phylogenetic trees.

Subject: Biology:Evolution, Environmental Science:Ecosystems:Evolution

Describe and Interpret Images: Folded Strata part of Examples
In class, have students make a simple sketch of an outcrop shown in a slide (or computer projection) then discuss possible interpretations.

Subject: Geoscience:Geology:Structural Geology:Folds/Faults/Ductile Shear Zones, Geoscience:Geology:Historical Geology, Tectonics

Rivers: Short In-class Activity part of Examples
Images of the James River in Virginia, including one at flood stage, and of potholes, all of which can be used to have the students make observations, estimates, and interpretations.

Magma Viscosity Demos part of Examples
This is an interactive lecture where students answer questions about demonstrations shown in several movie files. They learn to connect what they have learned about molecules, phases of matter, silicate crystal structures, and igneous rock classification with magma viscosity, and to connect magma viscosity with volcano explosiveness and morphology.
