Life Science

  • Introduction to Prokaryotes: Cyanobacteria In this lab students observe two examples of cyanobacteria and make a simple comparison to a eukaryotic green alga. View »
  • Bacterial Growth on MacConkey Agar In this lab students culture three bacteria on nutrient agar and MacConkey agar and record the results. View »
  • Next Generation Dissections Dissection can and should be part of your implementation of 3-dimensional learning. Carolina can help you make this transition with updated kits and resources. View »
  • Photosynthesis Introduce students to photosynthesis in a visual way. As Elodea uses carbon dioxide from an initial solution, a change in pH occurs, causing a color change in the solution. View »
  • What's Your Type? Using Carolina® Synthetic Blood in your classroom offers students the opportunity to conduct realistic blood typing activities without the associated risks. This activity includes a materials list and step-by-step instructions. View »
  • The Role of the Lymphatic System This activity focuses on the lymphatic system and kinds of allergic reactions. View »
  • Comparative Metamorphosis In this investigation, students observe development of 3 different insects from the larva or nymph stage through the adult stage. They also complete a comparative development study of metamorphosis, observing complete and incomplete metamorphosis. View »
  • Structure and Function in Plant and Animal Cell Osmosis Use this fun, interesting lab activity to show students how various structures within plant and animal cells are affected by osmosis. View »
  • Introduction to Fungi This lab introduces students to the Kingdom Fungi through study of two phyla, the zygomycetes and basidiomycetes. View »
  • Observing Plant Cells In this lab students observe Elodea leaves under magnification. They will see cell walls and chloroplasts. From the movement of chloroplasts they will infer that cyclosis, or protoplasmic streaming, is occurring. They also will observe that most chloroplasts are pressed tightly against the cell wall and should infer from this that much of the cell is occupied by a vacuole. View »
  • Introduction to Prokaryotes: Bacteria What are bacteria? In this introductory lab students make smears of bacteria on microscope slides from pure cultures, perform a simple stain, and observe their stained slides under a microscope View »
  • Engineering for Sports: Traumatic Brain Injury How can sports-related brain injuries be prevented? Get tips and resources to help your students engineer and test brain protection device designs. View »
