During this Unit, students will conduct several investigations focused on the inheritance of genetic information and the expression of traits. By conducting experiments, investigating different variables, and utilizing formulas, students will begin to draw conclusions concerning the relationship between the inheritance and expression of genes and the ability of organisms to adapt, grow, and reproduce in their environment.
By the conclusion of this Unit, students should realize that genetic information is found in the nucleus of a cell. This information is translated in proteins that carry out all functions of a cell. Students will come to realize the relationships between structure and function at the cellular and tissue level by understanding that
different proteins carry out different functions in different cells.
Through performing experiments and participating in class discussions, students will begin to comprehend that all of their unique characteristics are a result of the inheritance of genes. This Unit will promote students’ awareness of inheritance
and adaptations that they encounter in their daily lives, building continuity between classroom investigations and daily applications.
Conceptual Themes addressed in this Unit:
- Changes and Reactions
- Structure and Function
