In this minds-on, hands-on activity, students learn the genetics of the ABO blood type system. Students use simple chemicals to simulate blood type tests and then carry out genetic analyses to determine whether hospital staff accidentally switched two babies born on the same day. This activity reinforces student understanding of the fundamental concepts that genes code for proteins which influence an organism's characteristics and Punnett squares summarize how meiosis and fertilization result in inheritance. Students also learn about codominance and multiple alleles of a single gene. The first version of the Student Handout includes an introduction to the immunobiology of the ABO blood type system. The second version includes an analysis of the genetics of skin color in which students learn how fraternal twins could have very different skin colors, the concept of incomplete dominance, and how a single phenotypic characteristic can be influenced by multiple genes and the environment.

Easy Science for Kids Photosynthesis: How Plants Make Food and Energy

In this minds-on activity, students develop science practice skills by developing plans for a hands-on investigation, carrying out the investigation, analyzing the data, and interpreting the results. Then, students answer analysis and discussion questions as they develop a basic understanding of how taste and olfactory receptor cells function and how sensory messages to the brain contribute to flavor perception and flavor-related behavior.

This minds-on, hands-on activity begins with analysis and discussion questions that develop student understanding of homeostasis and negative feedback, the difference between negative and positive feedback, and the cooperation between the respiratory and circulatory systems to provide O2 and remove CO2 for cells all over the body. Then, students carry out and analyze an experiment which investigates how rate and depth of breathing are affected by negative feedback regulation of blood levels of CO2 and O2. Finally, students formulate a question concerning effects of exercise on breathing, design and carry out a relevant experiment, analyze and interpret their data, and relate their results to homeostasis during exercise.
