tissues coordinated through a complex network of molecular messages and
interacting genes), fights a war with a pathogenic organism: one of the
many bacteria, viruses, and protozoans that can infect our bodies and
Inhalation and Exhalation-
The main objectives of this Mini-teach are to make a model of the respiratory
system that will demonstrate the processes of inhalation/exhalation and
to determine the volume of air exhaled.
Students will explain what work is, measure work done in moving an object,
and tell how energy is related to work in both machines and the human
Mechanism of Vision-
The objectives are: learning the way light reflected from objects enters
the eye; learning the basic anatomy and physiology of the eye; and learning
the basic mechanism of perception.
This lesson was designed for grades 4-6 to show that the general functions
of the respiratory system are to deliver oxygen to the tissues, the importance
of cellular respiration, the processes of inhalation/exhalation, determine
the volume of air exhaled and to eliminate carbon dioxide formed in the
Rubber Egg- To demonstrate
the semi-permeability of a cell membrane. To lay groundwork for discussion
Sound and Hearing-
To demonstrate that sound travels. To explore how sound is reflected,
amplified and recorded.
Staying Young with Vitamin
E- The main objective of this Mini-teach is to explain how Vitamin
E inhibits the oxidation of phospholipid and glycolipid molecules in cell
membranes possibly preventing the aging of cells.
Straight from the Heart-
The main objectives of this mini-teach are to define and demonstrate the
functions of the heart; observe the vibration of a match due to the pulsation
of blood in the wrist; to construct a simple stethoscope and use it to
listen to your heartbeat; to measure your heart rate (pulse); to compare
your heart rate with your partner's heart rate; and to calculate the number
of times your heart beats in one hour.
Taste, Smell, Touch-
. The objective is to compare and describe objects by using the senses
of touch, smell, and taste, and to demonstrate more clearly how a single
sense works by eliminating one of the other senses.
