GTAC resources of the month – July

Each month we will be featuring a number of GTAC VCE Biology resources that are freely available for teachers and students. These resources are great to use as learning and/or revision tasks.

VCE Biology Unit 2

Application and emerging issues of cloning in agriculture

Students explore the transmission of the genome through asexual reproduction. They then investigate issues that may arise when genetic engineering techniques are used to produce Genetically Modified Organisms. Click here to view this resource.

 

 

 

The Cell Cycle - Controlling cell division for human development and growth

An activity in which students manipulate a model of the cell cycle to simulate cell division. They then explore embryonic development and the effect of teratogens on the cell cycle. Click here to view this activity.

 

 

VCE Biology Unit 4

Evolutionary developmental biology

An online course in which students analyse evidence to explain the role of Bmp4 in evolutionary developmental biology. Click here for more information on this resource.

 

 

Models of human evolution

An online course in which students use fossil evidence to construct and critique models of human evolution. Click here for more information on this resource.
