Inexpensive and Versatile Resource - I use many different activities that come in the handbook, but one of my favorites is "James Bond: Cellular Spy". it's a great review of protein synthesis and can be used in both regular and AP Biology classes. My students have also used the beads to model operon structure and function, and model/act out the Calvin cycle. My A & P students have used it to make sarcomere models when learning about
