The author discusses learning opportunities for a science teacher who has free time while the students review for their examinations. The incorporation of a game into the lessons helps the students increase their retention level. The biology classes may be shown segments from the motion pictures "Blue Planet" and "Planet Earth" during discussions on anatomy, biodiversity and evolution. A visit from a science professional encourages the students to take more interest in the course.
