  • Introduction to Invertebrates In this lab, students study representatives of several invertebrate groups. View »
  • Homeostasis in Animals Introduce students to homeostasis with this activity. Gather data on set point or resting heart rate, exercise, collect data again, and relate the data to negative feedback mechanisms. View »
  • Introductory Genetics with Drosophila Use this LabSheet with a variety of our Drosophila cultures and sets for introductory labs covering monohybrid, dihybrid, and sex-linked crosses. View »
  • Genetics with Drosophila F1 Crosses Drosophila genetics labs without the the need to select virgin female flies for crosses. We ship F1 flies so your students need only to set them up in fresh vials to produce an F2. View »
  • Introduction to Hydra This lab introduces students to Phylum Cnidaria. The activity also serves as an introduction to animals. View »

  • Introduction to Protista: Paramecium Complexity in a single cell. In this lab students observe Paramecium as an example of a complex ciliated protist. View »
  • Making Algae Beads In this activity students create spheres of green algae for use in experiments that explore the metabolic processes of plants. Includes a materials list and step-by-step instructions. View »
  • Introduction to Drosophila: Phenotypes In this lab students compare phenotypes of mutant Drosophila to wild type. The activity is intended as a student’s first experience working with Drosophila. View »
  • Lumbriculus: Contraction Rate of the Dorsal Blood Vessel In this introductory physiology lab, students determine the contraction rate of the dorsal blood vessel of the blackworm Lumbriculus. Students then design and conduct an experiment to determine the effect of temperature change or chemical exposure on the contraction rate. View »
  • Introduction to Protista: Amoeba What characteristics do protists share with animals? In this lab students observe Amoeba proteus to find out. View »
  • Bees, Butterflies, and Flowers Introduce your students to the symbiotic relationships between these organisms and to their impact on our food supply and environment.
