• elementary
  • The FOSS program endorses the National Science Teachers Association Guidelines for Responsible Use of Animals in the Classroom as they apply to elementary and middle school classrooms. (ousd.org)
  • components
  • Carbohydrates are the most abundant biological molecules, and fill numerous roles, such as the storage and transport of energy (starch, glycogen) and structural components (cellulose in plants, chitin in animals). (wikipedia.org)
  • Sub-tropical, arid and semi-arid landscapes and subtle climatic components are an influencing factor for the rich plant communities. (wikipedia.org)
  • cell
  • If these structures are manipulated incorrectly, through processes known as chromosomal instability and translocation, the cell may undergo mitotic catastrophe and die, or it may unexpectedly evade apoptosis, leading to the progression of cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • significant
  • Their survey of the genome of these organisms showed that Helitron activity could contribute to a significant fraction (∼ 2%) of the plant and invertebrate genomes where they were found, but the extent of their distribution elsewhere was not clear. (wikipedia.org)
  • small
  • The first Helitrons described were called Aie, AthE1, Atrep and Basho which are Non-autonomous Helitrons found in the genome of Arabidopsis thaliana, a small flowering plant. (wikipedia.org)
  • Less advanced courses typically focus on smaller subjects, such as small formaldehyde-preserved animals, while the more advanced courses normally use cadavers. (wikipedia.org)
  • students
  • The FOSS program provides detailed information on how to obtain organisms, how to prepare for their arrival, how to care for them in the classroom, and how to instruct students to properly handle each animal. (ousd.org)
  • The animals in the modules were selected because they are abundant, safe for students, easy to care for, and hardy and well-adapted to classroom environments. (ousd.org)
  • Visit the Arboretum during the Fall, Winter, or Spring and treat your students to a hands-on, real plants, learning experience! (umn.edu)
  • time
  • The deliberate integration, in space or time, of woody perennials with herbaceous crops and/or animals on the same land management unit. (gc.ca)
