8th Grade Life Science

Week 34

 Date Objective/ Procedure Handouts/ Labs Homework
5/7

Heredity-2

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

44. Bikini Bottom Genetics-1

45. Bikini Bottom Genetics-2

2.Watch and take notes on a video Bye Nye: Genetics to review the history and applications of genetics

NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.5 

 

 

 

 Prepare for Test: cell nucleus, chromosome, allele, gene, genotype, phenotype, dominant, recessive, homozygous, heterozygous traits, features, variation, adaptations, punnett squares- binder p. 42-45 , notes, lab activities
 

44. Bikini Bottom Genetics-1

45. Bikini Bottom Genetics-2

5/8

Impossible Traits & Selective Breeding

1.  Use multimedia simulation (open for directions) to determine the transfer of genetic information during the breeding of Larkeys and the traits that result: Foss Populations & Ecosystems Website

2. Go over:

44. Bikini Bottom Genetics-1

45. Bikini Bottom Genetics-2
NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.5 

 

 

5/9

Heredity-3

1.  Complete p. 46. Response Sheet: Genetic Variation/Genetic Variation Practice Sheet to understand how the possibilities for traits of offspring are determined by the genotypes of the parents

2.Watch and take notes on a video Bye Nye: Genetics to review the history and applications of genetics

NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.5 

5/10

Adaptation

1. Take video field trip to the Galapagos Islands to observe biologists working with endemic species in one of the world's finest laboratories for studying natural selection.

2. Understand that the survival of organisms and individuals within a populations allows for genes to be passed from one generation to the next

NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.5 

 

 
5/11

Genetics Evaluation

1. Demonstrate knowledge on a test: cell, nucleus, chromosome, allele, gene, genotype, phenotype, dominant, recessive, homozygous, heterozygous traits, features, variation, adaptations, punnett squares

2. Class Reading & Discussion and science journal entry response: Human Brain & Senses p.23-24 (Learning & Memory)

NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.5
