Biology Projects for Class 9

The aim of project work is to allow the learners in application of classroom learning to life outside the school. Individual contribution is required for the completion of the project and may be awarded marks or grades for the contribution. It is essential to make project work meaningful and learning oriented. Identification and selection of project work may be done with utmost care. Required guidance and suitable time-limit may be provided for carrying out the project effectively. The biology subject teacher may certify and ensure the project has been completed as desired. Preferring group work projects over individual projects will promote social skills.

Biology Projects for Class 9 is as illustrated below:

9th Grade Biology Students are given the following project:

Project on Non-communicable Diseases
  • Collect information about communicable diseases, refer to books, journals and surf the internet.
  • Present the project in a folder with illustrations and pictures.
  • The folders presented will be evaluated on the criteria of content, neatness of preparation of project and illustration.
Project: To study in detail about non-communicable diseases. 

Non-communicable disease is a medical condition or a disease or a disorder which is not transferable among people. These diseases may be chronic, they may be of long duration, slow progression and they may result in rapid death. Non communicable diseases include heart ailments, autoimmune diseases, cancers, stroke, asthma, diabetes, kidney disease, etc.
Non-communicable disease definition: Non-communicable diseases are defined as a medical condition or disease or a disorder that is non-infectious and non-transmissible among people.
Risk Factors
Risk factors for non-communicable diseases are the person's background, lifestyle and environment the person lives in. Risk factors also include age, sex, genetics; exposure to pollution, and smoking, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity, these behaviors can lead to hypertension and obesity leading to increased risk of non-communicable diseases.
The WHO (World Health Organization) has identified five important risk factors for non communicable diseases are high blood pressure, high levels of cholesterol, use of tobacco, alcohol consumption and obesity.
Some genetic disorders are also non-communicable diseases. These disorders are also caused by errors in the genome of the person which causes diseases in the affected people. Genetic disorders can occur due to spontaneous mutations or errors. Change in chromosome numbers (Down’s syndrome). Defect in the gene due to mutation (Cystic fibrosis).

Non communicable disease list:

Cancer - Majority of cancers are caused to risk in environmental and life-style related factors. Most of the cancers are preventable avoiding risk factors like tobacco, overweight or obesity, physical inactivity etc.

Cardiovascular disease - Cardiovascular diseases are caused due to risk factors like obesity, tobacco, alcohol consumption, physical inactivity, fast foods, etc.

Diabetes - Type 2 diabetes is preventable but difficult to cure. Keeping the blood sugar levels close to normal is possible preventing the patient from danger. This can be achieved by dietary management, physical exercise, and appropriate medications. Risk factors to this include smoking, elevated cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, obesity and lack of physical exercise.


Socio-Economic Impacts
Non-communicable diseases hinder social progress and it is closely linked to poverty. Rise in the cases of these diseases predict the rise in poverty level in low-income countries. People in lower social positions are at a disadvantage as they get sick and die soon being exposed to risk factors like tobacco, unhealthy food and access to health care is limited. The health-care costs are driving families to poverty. In the third world countries harmful drinking and unhealthy diet and unhealthy lifestyle occurs in both higher and lower social groups.

Prevention and Control
  • To decrease the impact of non-communicable diseases a broad approach is required in health, finance, education, planning and others. Promote treatments to prevent and control the diseases.
  • Another important way is to reduce risk factors related with these diseases.
  • Other ways to prevent these diseases is to provide low-cost primary health care services.

Question:Cultivation of two or more crops together in the same field is 1. Mixed Cropping 2. Intercropping 3. crop rotation 4. all the above

Answers:4. all the above. Mixed cropping is growing of two or more crops simultaneously, Inter cropping is growing of different crops in close proximity, Crop rotation is growing of different crops in subsequent seasons.

Question:For my biology class, we have to take 5 parts of the animal cell, nucleus, nucleolus, nuclear envelope, nuclear pore, and mitochondria and we have to act as if we're making a brochure for an amusement park except the amusement park is the cell and we're advertising the different things to see and do, seeing the nucleus, etc. I don't really have any ideas on how I could do this, we have to be creative and im not that creative with these kind of things. any ideas of how i could do it?

Answers:yeah sure well i dont know if it will be creative but you can try like ...... draw a map of it and every so often you hit or run into a organ bacuse you are in the middle of a process ie like the animal just ate food or something!! i hope you understand what am saying am in 10th grade and i did something like it and my teacher loved it! good luck!

Question:I'm making a 72(progress report grade) in Biology Pre-Ap but I really want to bring it up to a B+ or preferably an A. I have worked so hard in that class but the problem is the test he gives us. We are now doing an animal kingdom notebook project and we are allowed to use our notes, but when it is test time, it's not easy looking through the whole notebook secton in less than 50 mins on a 40-50 question test. Please, what are some advice to help me prepare better on my test. I write my notes in a sub-divided format( I forgot what the format is called) so they are very organized. I don't know, I don't think I study enough but I really want to do well on my next test and this six weels report card. Please help(Tips!!, are welcome) ---------------- -10 points-best answer -5 stars -added contact(if I already added you, I'll answer 1 or 2 of your questions) p.s I have one week because after this week is final exams and I would like some tips to prepare for the biology exam... thx

Answers:It is good you can use your notes, but don't use them as a crutch. I home schooled my daughter and she always did well on the animal kingdom because she loves animals. Math went in one ear and out the other. To this day, she has problems with math. It is not that she can't do it, it is her attitude toward it. My point, hit the books and fall in love with the subject. I know it sounds hard, but you are seeing the animals a seperate. In the larger picture, they are a part of us. Find out how. My husband and I went to 'The Bodies Exhibit' when we were in Vegas. He didn't want to go at first, but then he changed his thinking about it and enjoyed it. It had a bunch of bodies sliced in different ways so you can see inside the human body, in case you never heard of it. You would be surprised how some parts of our inner bodies look like different fish and animals. It was amazing. Anyway, attitude is key. Once you make the decision to really know the subject, you will be more aware of thing you wouldn't have noticed before. Just learning it for a test will only get you so far. Learning to have an understanding and really seeing the subject will give you a greater understanding and then you will be able to mark references that will take you quicker to areas with facts that will be usable on your test. Use those post it tabs to help you move quicker. I hope I helped you. Good luck.

Question:I need information on the phylums... Porifera Cnidaria Platyhelminthes nematoda mollusca annelida arthropoda echinodermata chorodata the meaning of the name, atleast two classes from that phylum, 3 common examples of species from that phylum, major living environments, economic importance of that phylum, unique characteristics ie: reproductive method, body parts, type pf symmetry. please dont give me a web site!!!!!!!!! best answer will be rewarded so try hard!

Answers:1. The correct word is "phyla," not "phylums." 2. You need to do your own homework. I would be happy to help with specific questions, but not an entire homework assignment.

The Mitosis Medley (9th Grade Biology Project) :For the project, we had to make a song about mitosis. This was for Mrs. Cox class, period 1. Here's our performance (: Starring: -Patrick Perez -Aaron Lavine -Monica Vathanavarin -Tyler Postle -Jonathan Chang Credit to Kathy Pham for filming! Thank you Kathy :D Lyrics: (Birthday Sex) Its Mitosis so I know you want to divide out. Two daughter cells are the product of this division. 2 and 3, add them together. That makes 5, and thats how many steps there are Mitosis (3x) (Oooh) (TiK ToK) Oh oh oh (2x) Step one, interphase. Period of cell growth. Synthesize, organize molecules and organelles. G1, S, G2 are all part of interphase. (Oh Oh Oh) Two chromosomes with centriole pairs. (Replay) Prophase is the second part of this stage in the nucleus of the cell. Nananana at every rate, centrioles begin to separate (-ate, -ate) Chromatins start to condense into visible chromosomes. Nucleus disappears, centrioles reappear at opposite ends. Who wouldve ever knew, a mitotic spindle would form. Its worldwide across the cell, pulling chromatids away. (Tie Me Down) Though its only for a few minutes, But uh, its still really important like, These chromosomes Lining up at the metaphase plate And right now theyre pretty much away from it Division, I think that they should wait for it I mean later we divide things out But not right now cause, Now were in metaphase The third stage Lining up with all the chromosomes Across the cell Happening right now Its lining up with chromosomes At its ...
