One characteristic of all life forms is a life cycle-from reproduction in one generation to reproduction in the next. This session introduces life cycles by focusing on continuity of life in the animal kingdom. In addition to considering what aspects of life cycles can be observed directly, the underlying role of DNA as the hereditary material is explored.

SIE14024: Essential Science for Teachers: Life Science - Plant Life Cycles

What is a plant? One distinguishing feature of members of the plant kingdom is their life cycle. In this session, flowering plants serve as examples for studying the plant life cycle by considering the roles of seeds, flowers, and fruits. A comparison to animal life cycles reveals some surprising similarities and intriguing differences.

SIE14025: Essential Science for Teachers: Life Science - Variation, Adaptation, and Natural Selection
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1

What causes variation within a population of living things? How can variation in one generation influence the next generation? In this session, variation in a population will be examined as the "raw material" upon which natural selection acts.

SIE14026: Essential Science for Teachers: Life Science - Evolution and the Tree of Life
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1

Why are there so many different kinds of living things? Comparing species that exist today reveals a lot about their relationships to one another and provides evidence of common origins. This session explores the theory of evolution: change in species over time.

SIE14027: Essential Science for Teachers: Life Science - Energy Flow in Communities
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1

Communities are populations of organisms that live and interact together. The structure of a community is defined by food web interactions. The process of energy flow is the focus of this session as the interactions between producers, consumers, and decomposers are examined.

SIE14028: Essential Science for Teachers: Life Science - Material Cycles in Ecosystems
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1

Studying an ecosystem involves looking at interactions between living things as well as the nonliving environment that surrounds them. Life depends upon the nonliving world for habitat, as well as energy and materials. In this session, material cycles will be explored as critical processes that sustain life in an ecosystem.

SIE14029: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - Earth's Solid Membrane: Soil
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}

The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula.

Dirt… earth… soil… it forms where Earth’s rocky crust meets the atmosphere. Although it is common to everyday experience, people are often surprised at the complex nature of soil. In this session, participants will explore the processes of soil formation by examining how soil appears on a newly formed, barren volcanic island.

SIE14030: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - Every Rock Tells a Story
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}

The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula. 

Every rock has a story to tell if you know how to read it. Within the unique composition and arrangement of materials that compose different rocks, you can find patterns that are evidence of the processes that formed them - processes that represent chapters in Earth’s dynamic history. In this session we will focus on discerning events in Earth's past from rock clues. This session begins a multi-part investigation into the kinds of stories rocks can tell.

SIE14031: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - Journey to the Earth's Interior
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}

The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula. 

The theory of plate tectonics represents a unifying set of ideas that have great power in explaining and predicting major geologic events. In this session, we continue to explore this theory by focusing on how it is possible for tectonic plates to move. This leads us to examine Earth’s internal structure and the dynamic nature of its interior, which reveals another story of the Earth that rocks can tell.
