Today we are taking the Genetics Test!
Today we are reviewing Punnett Squares in preparation for our test tomorrow.
We are working through our Punnett Squares Practice Sheet.
Today we will work on the Genetics Terminology Practice Worksheet. Students will then work individually on Genetics Practice Problems Worksheet.
Students completed the Genetics Nearpod and filled in their Genetics Notes.
Students are working on their Monsters! Students were given a strip of DNA and had to complete the process of protein synthesis in order to figure out their Monster’s traits. Students then must draw a picture of their Monster.
We are in the library working on our cloning paper.
We are studying the Genetics vocabulary in Quizlet.
We have been in the library working on our cloning paper. Students picked a side (legal or illegal), then chose 3 reasons to back their decision up. Students should now be working on finding evidence for each reason. This can all be found in the Cloning Paper Checklist document in Google Classroom.
Both days, students will review for their test on Friday. We did a protein synthesis demo yesterday to help understand the steps of protein synthesis better. Today we will review all material that will be on the test, including: cell division, DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis.
Benchmarks are next week!
Students finished their Cloning Sources assignment on Google Classroom. They were to find 3 articles they could use when writing their cloning paper later this year. They each had to pass the C.R.A.A.P. test.
Students completed the Protein Synthesis Nearpod, taking their own notes as they went. They then studied the vocab on Quizlet.
Students received their Learning Targets for the Cell Division/DNA test that is this Friday, March 3rd. Students are making flashcards to study.
Today, students will turn in their lab work from yesterday. Then, they will complete the DNA Structure & Replication Nearpod and fill in the notes as they go.
Today we are building models of DNA using K’Nex. Students will answer 5 “Evaluate Your Learning” Questions at the end. Any drawings or questions not completed in class are homework, due tomorrow.
