Step-by-step instructions for a science lab to dissect a cow eye
Cow Eye Dissection
This simple edible model serves to support instruction on the main structures of the eye for students who are blind or visually impaired.
Everything you need to know about Nucleus is here in this content.
Nucleus - Structure and Functions
This simple activity connects the sounds encountered in different biomes with the sounds made by both biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) features.
Sounds of Biomes
In this activity, students with visual impairments compare the structure and function of broadleaf leaves and pine needles.
Leaf Structure and Function
In this activity, students order the levels of organization from least to most interactions or vice versa.
Ecology: Levels of Organization
This experiment provides a low cost solution for investigating the rate of photosynthesis for students who are blind and visually impaired.
Rate of Photosynthesis
A fun alternative to a standard lesson about the structure of DNA is to use different types of candy to represent the different components of the DNA molecule.
Edible DNA model
In this activity, students who are blind or visually impaired are introduced to the structure of DNA and learn to "read" the code found in the nitrogen bases (the rungs).
Reading the DNA Code Using the APH DNA Twist Model
This activity, appropriate for a warm up, has students with visual impairments compare the final results of mitosis and meiosis and can be played as a competitive game.
Meiosis vs. Mitosis Using the APH Life Science Tactile Graphic Set
This simple model and related activities help students who are blind or visually impaired understand how the central vacuole of a plant cell helps the plant cell to remain firm.
Central Vacuole of Plant Cell with Structural Support Model
This activity ties in both the structure and function theme prevalent in biology and provides an engaging introduction to organic molecules.
