Thanks again Carolyn! I have created several collections that deal with the 5 themes of biology. In each collection are articles that deal with lesson plans/inquiry activities for each theme. If anyone has anything else to add please let me know. Thanks again!

Thank you Carolyn! I will be sure to check that out. I am looking for labs which would correlate with the 5 themes of teaching biology. In particular I am looking for labs which are inquiry or hands on based that would reinforce various topics in life science.

I am trying to compile a list of labs to use in the HS Biology classroom. Does anyone have any that they would like to share? Please list the topic they are correlated with. Thanks!

4 Dichotomous Key
I did this activity with my 10th grade biology class to introduce them to the topic of classification. They really enjoyed this activity, however the problems that arose were checking to see if they were correct. The only true way to tell is to taste the jelly beans and thats not a good diea with food allergies. Also, dependent on the types of jelly belly beans I noticed that you do have to introduce "new species" to the mix.

4 Resource SciPack
I teach HS biology and I thought this scipak was a great overview of topics. It explained concepts in an easy and concise way. I also agree that some of the questions could be answered with prior knowledge.
