Activity Description of "Enzyme Flip Books"

Title Enzyme Flip Books
Audience Grades 9-12. Biology, Life Science or Integrated ScienceSheltered (ESL) classes
Abstract Students design and produce a small "movie" of a biological process (enzyme activity is described). Students design a flip-book (many pages of drawings which, when flipped, move like a motion picture) which demonstrates one of the theories of enzyme activity. Students choose a theory such as induced fit, positive or negative regulators etc., and then using their creativity find a humorous or artistic interpretation to demonstrate the principle. Students produce a product that they are proud of, they actually learn and absorb the process, and evaluation is enjoyable as well.
