Activity Description of "Bio. Problem Solving Experiments"

Title Bio. Problem Solving Experiments
Audience Grades 7-12, All levels.
Abstract Listed below are experimental research ideas that I have compiled from a variety of sources for a problem solving project that I require for all students-applied and college prep. Students identify a problem of their choosing and work toward solving it using their science process skills. Students are graded on their skill performance using a rubric that I developed for this project. This the first experience these students have had in our K-12 school system to do individual experimental research. Many ideas on the list are ones researched by my students in past years using organisms from the five kingdoms. Others are ones I have compiled from a variety of resource books. Some have come from me going through old biology manuals and revising the "canned" lab into a problem solving experiment. Please e-mail me if I can be of more help or can answer questions--
