ActionBioscience.org is a website run by the American Institute of Biological Sciences (part of the National Science Foundation).  It is a great educational resource that covers many fields of biological science.  They have generated a great list of original peer-edited lessons that span everything from biodiversity and the environment to evolution and genomics.  Their lessons range from middle school to undergraduate level.  Click the “Action Bioscience” link below to see their list of links.

I want to highlight one of the lessons to give you an idea of what they have to offer.  Below is a link to a lesson about Microbes.  It outlines the ways that humans have contributed to antibiotic resistance in bacteria.  It can be adapted for middle school to undergraduate level.  Click on “Microbes:  Too Smart for Antibiotics?” to view the lesson.
