Welcome to one of my favorite topics....
.....there are many reasons why I like it so much. Perhaps it is because it is rooted microscopically in the DNA molecule and expresses its effects on a macroscopic scale, with our eye color, height, health, etc.
We will be using a lab module called
to illustrate the connection between the environment, natural selection, and an organisms genetic make-up. Students will build organisms and see how well adapted they are to a changing environment. I will be posting pictures as we get into this fun lab.
Below is a link to the packet we will be using as a base for DNA/genetic/heredity studies. Some of it will be a review of previously learned material and some will be new information and application when studying this fascinating field. There are many careers in this area that will be explored as we go from DNA to RNA to protein to environment. Many advances have been made and some of the most prominent will be highlighted on this page for further study.
