Activities-To-Go is a place for all science teachers to share innovative, successful teaching strategies and activities to help students learn the concepts and processes of the life sciences. You may UPLOAD an activity, or do a search by Keyword, Grade Level, Subject and Special Categories, or National Science Education Standards (NSES)

Search Activities by Keyword:

Enter a word in the above box and press the Search button, or press the Return key. The results of your search will be all activities which contain the word or combination of words you have entered.

Tips for Searching

You may search for a whole or a part of a word. For example, enter "leuk" to find documents that contain the word "leukemia." You may also search for multiple terms. For example, you might enter "farming environment" to find documents that combine the two topics. The search is not case-sensitive; your keyword will match both upper and lower case words in the documents.
