Using experiments in organizing teaching activities in/for Biology class is a way to transform learners' awareness - from accessing content to taking actions. Besides, teaching by topic is both a requirement and an inevitable trend nowadays. Therefore, the use of experiments to organize teaching by topic can be considered an optimal solution. This article aims to elaborate on the instructional activities in which experiments can be used to deliver the topic “Energy transformation” in teaching Biology.
