Bottle Biology Spotlight

At this point in your course, we hope that you have selected a Bottle Biology strand for exploration of course topics. The bottle system that has been designed to accompany Sessions 3 and 4 – Animal Life Cycles and Plant Life Cycles – is called the “Brassica & Butterfly System.” This system starts with the seeds of a plant and the eggs of an insect and demonstrates both the individual life cycles as well as how the life cycles of each intertwine. See below for more information and to track the progress of our own Essential Science for Teachers system.
