Cells and Chemical Reactions


A Science Guide is a valuable classroom resource for science teachers interested in integrating the web into their teaching. Each guide consists of approximately 100 web-accessible resources (URLs) that have been aligned to the National Science Education Standards (NSES) and vetted across eight educational rubrics, such as Inquiry, Interactivity, Communication/ Collaboration, How Scientists Learn, etc. These URL resources have been assembled in a thematic drill-down structure with linked lesson plans, vignettes, samples of student work and MP3 files that demonstrate how the Guide’s URLs can be utilized in a classroom. Ultimately, a Science Guide is a resource that saves educators time by providing exemplary web resources that have been pre-evaluated and aligned to the National Science Education Standards.

The Cells and Chemical Reactions SciGuide includes a variety of resources that explore the basics of metabolism, the processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration, and the reaction rates in cells.

The Cells and Chemical Reactions Sciguide is a conglomerate of valuable resources! I found the Cells and Chemical Reactions Scipack VERY informative but somewhat challenging when it came to developing lesson plans. However, the resources provided in the sciguide as a "now what can I do to teach these concepts?" avenue was chock full of ideas, hands-on activities as well as articles that are student friendly, very relevant to content and al l play al part of scaffolding of this content. I gained much insight and ideas in how to incorporate the tons of information that was learned/reviewed in the partner scipack into my lessons in a fun and student friendly way, all thanks to this awesome resource!

This SciGuide, Cells and Chemical Reactions, gives a brief overview of the biology of cells and the chemical reactions that occur within cells. The four components are: Metabolism, Respiration, Photosynthesis, and Reaction Rates. It provides enough information to deliver a coherent lesson to a middle school life science or 9th/10th grade biology audience. I would be interested in using some of the labs, such as the yogurt fermentation lab, but I am wary of the ulterior consequences in my "non-science lab" classroom.
