The Anatomy of the Heart (Video)
By Becky Polk-Pohlman
In this video learners view the valves and chambers of the heart.
By Barbara Liang
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine ABO blood antigens and Rh antigens and their compatibility.
The Sense of Taste
In this interactive object, learners examine the structure and function of the sense of taste.
Muscle Cell Contraction
In this animated activity, learners examine muscle cell contraction and relaxation and consider the role of calcium ions.
The Cell: Passive Transport Diffusion
In this animated object, learners view molecules as they collide and move between two different solutions. They also observe what happens when the temperature of the solutions is raised or lowered.
The Sense of Hearing (Screencast)
In this screencast, learners examine hearing and balance. Detailed drawings of the outer, middle, and inner ear structures are included.
Identifying Eukaryotic Animal Cell Organelles
In this animated object, learners are introduced to the structure and function of animal cell organelles.
Construction of the Cell Membrane
By Becky Polk-Pohlman, Barbara Liang
In this learning activity you'll study the structure of the cell membrane and construct it using the correct molecules.
Anatomy of the Ear
By Donna Matusewic
The student identifies the anatomical parts of the ear and learns the purpose and function of these parts. A review follows the lesson.
In this animated activity, learners examine the two major phases of cell division: mitosis and cytokinesis.
The 12 Cranial Nerves
In this interactive and animated object, learners read a description of the number, name, and function of the cranial nerves. A matching quiz completes the activity.
In this learning activity you'll review how every protein molecule of an organism is synthesized by that organism in a prescribed process. This activity helps students understand the fundamental life process of making protein.
Biomolecules - The Lipids
In this animated object, learners examine neutral fats, phospholipids, and cholesterol. The molecular formula and general function for each are shown.
The Anatomy of the Heart
By Wendy Dusek
In this animated and interactive object, learners identify the valves and chambers of the heart.
A Typical Animal Cell
By Gerald Heins
In this interactive object, learners identify the parts of an animal cell and its organelles.
Transport Processes Requiring ATP
In this animated object, students observe how ATP energy is used to move substances across the cell membrane from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration and when something too large needs to get in or out of a cell.
The Neuromuscular Junction
In this animated object, learners examine the major events that occur at the neuromuscular junction.
An Overview of Pulmonary and Systemic Circulation
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine how blood flows through the heart and lungs. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Microbial Flora in Body Sites
By Dawn Madl
In an interactive exercise, learners identify the human body sites that harbor a normal resident flora and the sites that are sterile.
How to Use a Microscope
Learners examine the function of each part of a microscope and follow step-by-step instructions on how to focus on a specimen. They also review the proper use and care of a microscope and test their knowledge in two drag-and-drop exercises.
The Axial Skeleton: The Skull and the Rib Cage
In this animated object, learners examine the eight cranial bones, the fourteen facial bones, and the ribs.
Regional Body Parts
In this interactive object, learners identify a person's regional body parts.
Anatomical Terminology: Body Regions
Students identify the various regions of the human body through drag-and-drop exercises.
Biomolecules - The Proteins
In this animated object, learners read an introduction to protein structure and function.
The Cell: Passive Transport Osmosis
In this animated object, learners examine water molecules moving through a semipermeable membrane.
