Guest Speaker - Watersheds & Water Quality

1.  Participation in a presentation about watersheds to understand what they are, what determines water quality, and what people can do to keep water clean

2.  Identify point source and non point source pollution

3.  Draw conclusions about how how individuals can affect the quality of water

4/26

Heredity-1

1.  Simulate the four-gene genotype of larkeys by breeding the pair by randomly drawing one allele for each gene from each parent. The combination of eight random alleles is the genotype of the F1 offspring andF2 generation. Mendel Ted Ed


2. Decode the genotype to see what traits both offspring have and t
ally the traits for the whole class and analyze the results.

3. Understand the probability of genotypes and phenotypes by completing problems:

NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.5 

 24. Larkey Genetics Mat/ Larkey Breeding Steps

25. Larkey Breeding Results/ Punnett Squares

44. Bikini Bottom Genetics-1

45. Bikini Bottom Genetics-2

Journal: difference between genotype & phenotype

Exit: Draw favorite Larkey- identify phenotype & possible genotypes
