INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS USED IN TEACHING BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES (Biology, Chemistry and Physics)

Online Virtual Laboratory (http://amrita.vlab.co.in/index.php?sub=3&brch=187&sim=324&cnt=4) This is an Online Laboratory which offers Instructive Simulation and
Animation to demonstrate the various complex functions in diverse areas of science, especially Chemistry, Physics and Biology. Real lab scenarios are captured through live demonstration of the experiment so as to assimilate information on the procedures and lab equipment. Simulations are made interactive using various authoring tools, thus recreating and simulating a real lab environment.

Cell-vivor http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/exchange/files/cell%20structure%20func
tion.pdf

It is a game based on the television reality series Survivor where each


student or team of student advocates for one part of the eukaryotic cell (plasma membrane, various organelles, cytoskeleton) stating reasons why the cell needs their part so much it shouldn't be "voted off". Students should be encouraged not to simply repeat textbook descriptions of what their part of the cell does, but also to explain what will go wrong without their cell part. In the wrap-up for this activity, the teacher discusses first how all the parts of a cell depend on each other to accomplish the activities of life.

Connecting Concepts: Interactive Lessons in Biology http://ats.doit.wisc.edu/biology/lessons.htm

It is a series of interactive web-based lessons designed to give


introductory undergraduate biology students opportunities to connect biology concepts.

Detective Science Games (Plant Parts and Functions) http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/gamesactivities/detectivescience/plant


parts.html

In this particular topic, Plant Parts and Functions; the plants are
growing out of control and Students play the role of detective while completing challenges in a range of fun science games and activities! This science game for kids involves zapping rogue seeds and labeling the different parts of a plant, including the carpel, nectary, petal, receptacle, sepal and stamen. They learn about petals, pollen, seeds, the functions of different plant parts and the role insects play in the life cycle of a plant.

Science Games (Food Chains) http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/gamesactivities/foodchains.html It is an Interactive Food Chain Game, where students learn about
various living things such as animals and plants, sort them into different categories and discover where they fit into the food chain. The woodland habitat is explored and sorts the different animals and plants into food chains while comparing which ones fly, which have legs and which have shells.

Interactive DNA (Genetics: Complex Inheritance Complex) http://www.learner.org/interactives/dna/genetics8.html The DNA Interactive consists of a brief introduction, five sessions, and
an assessment, wherein each session describes various concepts in detail, often with the aid of one or more interactive components that allow students to explore concepts introduced in the session or to

evaluate their understanding of the information. Students should carefully read each section and use the interactive to supplement their knowledge of concepts such as transcribing DNA and translating mRNA sequences, engineering plasmids, and solving genetic inheritance problems using Punnett Squares.

The Virtual Body http://medtropolis.com/virtual-body/ It is a virtual tour of the human body produced by MEDtropolis.
Detailed descriptions, animations, images, and narrated tours present the brain, skeleton, heart, and digestive tract in an informative way.

Biology in Motion (Evolution Lab) http://biologyinmotion.com/evol/index.html Biology in Motion is an online resource of exhibits and activities created
by Dr. Saul, which includes animations, interactive activities, and cartoons designed to make learning biology a richer, more engaging experience; as well as Tips for Teachers section which has a very useful advice on using technologies in the classroom. Evolution Lab in particular, is a Do-it-yourself evolution. This humorous but powerful simulation tool which tests the effects of selection, mutation and chance on the evolution of a trait.

Census of Marine Life http://www.coml.org/image-gallery Census of Marine Life is an invaluable resource for Biology Students and
anyone even remotely interested in the wonders of the worlds oceans. It features astounding photography of newly discovered, alien-like species of the deep ocean, proving the diversity of Marine Life. COMLs video galleries, publications, and research are also available for public viewing.
