Product Details

Motivate your students with this cleverly designed embryology activity. Using a unique microscopic grid, students anchor brine shrimp cysts and watch their embryological development from a few cells to free-swimming larva! The “stuck-on” cyst technique allows students to systematically study hatching and monitor individual cysts. The excitement builds as their brine shrimp hatch, leaving the stuck cysts behind. Guaranteed to capture your students’ interest! Teacher Notes, reproducible handouts and all necessary chemicals and specialized equipment are provided.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs.

Performance Expectations

HS-LS1-4. Use a model to illustrate the role of cellular division (mitosis) and differentiation in producing and maintaining complex organisms.
HS-LS2-1. Use mathematical and/or computational representations to support explanations of factors that affect carrying capacity of ecosystems at different scales.
HS-LS2-2. Use mathematical representations to support and revise explanations based on evidence about factors affecting biodiversity and populations in ecosystems of different scales.
