Daily Objectives:

1.  Compare how characteristics of living things are passed on through generations, both asexually and sexually.

2. Differentiate between acquired vs inherited traits.

L.HE.07.21  /  L.HE.M.2

Today in Class:

1.  Students evaluated and wrote down examples as they observed others’ Google.docs Acquired vs. Inherited Slides.  This should have given you some great ideas and a better understanding of the difference between acquired and inherited traits or physical characteristics.

2.  Next, we started a second Punnett Square practice WS.  Most classes completed the front side of this worksheet.

Homework:

No HW, but if you would like some online Punnett Square practice, and genetics and heredity background information here are some websites for help 🙂

1.  This is a great site, but stick to the first two sets of crosses… we have not covered Incomplete Dominance.
