Week 5 – Osmosis Lab – In this investigation, we will use a hen’s fresh egg to determine what happens during osmosis and diffusion across membranes.

Week 7 – Fermentation – We will set up a fermentation in a closed system and capture the generated carbon dioxide to carbonate root beer.

Week 8 – Mitosis Flip Book – We are drawing our own, moving cell division!

Week 9 – Punnett Square – Applying our knowledge of phenotypes and genotypes to complete a worksheet.

Week 10 – Genetic Match – Students will determine the presence of certain high-frequency traits in themselves and their family members.

Week 11 – DNA Extraction – We will be creating a mixture to extract DNA from a strawberry!

Week 13 – M&M Lab – Activity to simulate the process of radioactive decay and to illustrate the concept of half-life.
