Product Details

You are the head of a crime lab! Field agents have just brought back evidence from the crime scene and now it is up to the lab team to compile data from the evidence. Students examine four different slides to determine what type of tissue is present in each sample. Then they classify epithelial tissue according to its layers. Before reporting their findings to the investigators, students sketch tissue images and explain the features that led to their conclusions for each specific tissue type. Kit includes eight prepared slides—two of each type, valuable Teacher Notes, and reproducible student handouts. Complete for 32 students working in groups of four.


Materials Included in Kit: 
Slide box
Slide, cardiac muscle, intercalated discs, 2
Slide, motor nerve cells smear, 2
Slide, mouse blood, 2
Slide, squamous, epithelium smear, 2

Performance Expectations

MS-LS1-1. Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells; either one cell or many different numbers and types of cells
MS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function.
MS-LS1-3. Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells.
MS-LS1-8. Gather and synthesize information that sensory receptors respond to stimuli by sending messages to the brain for immediate behavior or storage as memories.
HS-LS1-1. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins, which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.
HS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms.
