Instructional Ideas

  • Though intended for honors-level classes, portions of the lesson could be adapted for Biology 1
 
Classroom Considerations

  • If your classroom lab does not have enough computers for groups, schedule time in a computer lab to facilitate web quest, virtual lab, and creation of presentations
  • The experiment requires a fairly full list of materials, some of which will need to be purchased; therefore, review the requirements early in order to plan
Pros

  • The lesson focuses on enzyme structure and function, illustrating their role in homeostasis within the human body
  • Learners will benefit from a variety of instructional methods
  • Resources can be adapted to different levels of knowledge and ability
Cons

  • None
