BC BIOLOGY 12, Inquiry into Life Why BC Biology 12: Inquiry into Life is Right for Your Classroom 100% match to the Biology 12 IRP, with additional, in-depth material on photosynthesis and cellular respiration Trusted content from Sylvia Mader’s Inquiry into Life is the foundation of this new resource Units and chapters sequenced with the curriculum in a manner familiar to teachers Current Canadian and BC-specific references (Example: Canada’s Food Guide) Strong focus on individualized learning
BC BIOLOGY 12, Inquiry into Life Why BC Biology 12: Inquiry into Life is Right for Your Classroom In-depth coverage of the curriculum’s prescribed learning outcomes: A.Processes of Science B.Cell Biology C.Human Biology Coverage of the three domains of learning: i.Cognitive: knowledge, understanding and application, and higher mental processes ii.Affective: attitudes, beliefs, and the spectrum of values and value systems iii.Psychomotor: movement and skill demonstration (integrating cognitive and affective consequences with physical performances)

BC BIOLOGY 12, Inquiry into Life Activities – Chapter 13 Teacher Resource Simulated Pressure Filtration Activity Section 13.2 Anatomy of the Kidney and Excretion 1. Simulate pressure filtration. Make a large jug of “blood.” Use water, food colouring (to simulate dissolved solutes such as glucose, amino acids and ions), small and large beads (to simulate formed elements), and clear, colourless but small beads to represent the plasma proteins. The container represents the afferent arteriole. Pour the contents of this jug into another jug using a funnel. The funnel represents Bowman’s capsule. Line the funnel with a wire mesh that will not let the small, large, or colourless beads pass through. The mesh represents the pores of Bowman’s capsule that allow small molecules to pass. The container that the filtrate is entering represents the PCT. In this analogy, gravity provides the force necessary for movement of materials, but in the body, blood pressure provides this force. Students can be asked to predict what happens when blood pressure rises, or is too low. 2.A pig or sheep kidney can be dissected showing the cortex, medulla, pelvis, and renal pyramids. Blood vessels and ureters can be shown if still attached. 3.Each student can be given a piece of yarn or pipe cleaners (or similar), which can be bent and/or folded to model a nephron. Then, several nephrons can be interconnected, sharing common collecting ducts. The nephrons can be arranged left to right or right to left as they are in the kidney. Reinforce that Bowman’s capsule, PCT, and DCT all lie within the cortex. The loops of Henle and collecting ducts travel through the medulla, and all the collecting ducts merge and widen to form the pelvis. Th is activity reinforces structures of the nephron, regions of the kidney, and the idea that the kidney is a collection of filtration tubes. 4.Have students (in small groups) create a concept map that summarizes the essential processes in each part of the nephron in order to reinforce learning of the vocabulary and concepts associated with nephron structure and function. Students can explain their concept map designs to other members of their group.
