We are finally starting our 🩸 BLOOD EVIDENCE 🩸 unit over in Forensics and we kicked it off with a lesson over blood typing.After teaching about serology and blood typing, I had my students try their hand at a little murder mystery lab that I call DUMPING GROUND. ⚰️ This lab is so easy to set up and only uses household chemicals!Grab this lab at www.thetrendyscienceteacher.com/bloodtyping#forensicslab #bloodtyping #forensicsteacher #forensics #forensicscience #murdermystery #scienceteachersofinstagram
My new favorite classroom hack- use a straw dispenser to hold classroom pencils ✏️
I’m starting my cell transport lesson with this fun CELL MEMBRANE BUBBLE LAB In this lab, students perform 4 tasks that model properties of the cell membrane.This lab is so easy to set up and is always a student favorite.To get step-by-step details and the link to a FREE lab sheet download, visit my blog 👇🏼www.thetrendyscienceteacher.com/bubbles
To kick off our cells unit, my Bio students participated in a CELL ORGANELLES SPEED DATING ACTIVITY!Students were assigned an organelle to research and created a dating profile. Then, they “dated” each other to learn more about the different organelles that are found in cells.I served punch and put tea light candles in the desk. @maniacsinthemiddle came in clutch with her ❤️ love-themed playlist on Spotify (search Miss Bensko to find it).It was the best day! 🤩To use in your classroom, head to👇🏼www.thetrendyscienceteacher.com/date#biology #biologyteachers #biologyclass #highschoolbiology #biologylab #biologyteacher #biologyteachersofinstagram
Whoo hoo! Today, we start our cells unit. Cells is my favorite bio unit to teach. What’s yours?#cells #biology #biologyteacher #biologylab #biologyteachers
Most of my bio students come to me with no understanding of chemical reactions. (Our students take Bio before Physical Science or Chem.) I find that it’s really difficult to teach “Chemistry of Life” if students don’t understand basic Chem.I decided that I would do the elephant toothpaste demo so that when I’m teaching about Chem Rxns, students will have something to help them visualize the process. I always love this demo. It makes me want to teach Physical Science again.Here’s the recipe that most groups used:To get a good reaction…50 mL 30% Hydrogen peroxide 5-10 mL dish detergent 20 mL Potassium iodide solution (1M)a few drops of food coloring The best reaction was in a 1000 mL flask*Note: the last group in the video doubled their recipe! 😉#elephanttoothpaste #biologyteacher #scienceteacher #scienceteachers #iteachscience #highschoolscience

Last week, my forensics students learned about @the_innocence_project. They researched people that had been exonerated through TIP and created a banner to showcase their work. I love how they turned out!#innocenceproject #forensics #forensicscience #iteachforensics #forensicsteacher #highschoolforensics #forensicsclass
