Instructional Ideas
  • Group scientists in pairs while completing worksheet questions
  • Assign a KWL chart after pupils complete the worksheet to assess understanding and clarify conceptual misconceptions
  • Have investigators work collaboratively to design games about cellular respiration for use as review tools
Classroom Considerations
  • Prior to beginning, class members must complete an activity referenced in teacher notes
  • Request key by email available in teacher notes
Pros
  • Introduces biologists to conceptual models as learning tools for complex scientific concepts
  • Uses detailed images to break components into manageable parts
  • Perfect for remote learning
Cons
  • Lacks video or interactive animations to further clarify ideas and increase engagement
