ORIGIN OF LIFE LESSONS
 It is important to clearly distinguish the evolution of different species (with its very strong supporting evidence) from the origin of the very first life (which is still unclear, with several different scenarios still being explored). Consequently, interactive lessons are planned for this section which will focus on studies which address this frontier topic.
Intended Audience/Grade Level
 These lessons are intended for use in any high school biology course. However, many can be used in middle school / junior high school, possibly with slight modification depending on teacher's style and approach, and the experience and level of students. Many would likewise be appropriate for use in junior college or lower division university levels.

Creating Coacervates

 Students mix a carbohydrate solution with a protein solution, adjust the pH, and view coacervates: amoeba-like objects, which change shape, flow, merge, divide, form "vacuoles", release "vacuole contents", and show other life-like properties.
