Practical work is an approach in teaching Biology which enhances the development of skills.The skills pertain to the manipulation and proper use of laboratory equipment and following the correct procedure in performing experiments. They also relate to the scientific skills from the basic to higher-order thinking skills. Both laboratory and thinking skills can help students understand science ideas and concepts.

The content of this Sourcebook is structured around eight lessons. Each lesson is selfcontained but can be integrated with specific topics in the biology curriculum. Each lesson requires about three class periods of 40 minutes.
