Using this unit, you can be sure you’re covering MS LS3-2 and Utah SEEd 7.4.1.
MS LS3-2: Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation.
Utah SEEd 7.4.1: Develop and use a model to explain the effect that different types of reproduction have on genetic variation, including asexual and sexual reproduction.
I used this for review and practice. My 8th graders should already know this information, but with the pandemic, they seemed to have missed it entirely. This was a fun and easy way to catch them up in this area without being too babyish.Kayla S.
Great for practice and review of Punnett squares and heredity/genetics. Students loved the Monster Spinning activity and the worksheets were really helpful.Misty B.
