Students study karyotyping, which is a process in which chromosomes are cut out from an enlarged picture and arranged in decreasing order of size. They use a template to arrange and glue chromosomes to data sheet, indicate sample code, chromosome abnormality and sex of sample.
Born of Blood
Students define attributes of human chromosomes and match them to make a human karyotype. In this investigative lesson students demonstrate how traits are encoded in genes found on chromosomes.
Born of Blood: Inheritance of Blood Types
Students examine inheritance of blood types. In the chromosome lesson, students create a model of chromosome and predict the blood type of offspring.
High schoolers identify chromosome pairs based upon band patterns and location of centromere. They order chromosome pairs based upon size. Students differentiate normal karyotypes from abnormal karyotypes. They correctly record karyotype information using correct notation.
Dragon Genetics-Independent Assortment and Genetic Linkage
Young scholars build chromosome models using popsicle sticks. In this biology lesson, students simulate the Law of Independent Assortment. They use Punnett squares to predict the resulting genotype and phenotype.
X Is For Wonderment
Students engage in a lesson that is concerned with the "X" chromosome and how ti is part of genetics with the use of Punnett squares. They use this tool in order to predict future genetic outcomes while focusing upon specific questions.
In this meiosis worksheet, student complete the blanks describing the process of meiosis. Students draw a diagram of homologous chromosomes.
Born of Blood
Eighth graders use a large Punnett Square and infer how genes determine blood types. In this blood type lesson students predict blood types and demonstrate how Punnett Squares are related to genes and chromosomes.
Dragon Genetics Lab-Principles of Mendelian Genetics
Students study genetic traits using popsicle sticks as chromosomes. In this biology lesson, students explain how traits are inherited from parents. They differentiate dominant and recessive genes.
Learners view a video on DNA. They discuss mitosis, meiosis and fertilization. They use strips of paper to simulate fertilization and analyze the genotype and phenotype of the combined chromosomes.
In this meiosis worksheet, students will compare chromosome numbers from different organisms, review the phases of meiosis, and learn how meiosis leads to genetic variation. This worksheet has 14 fill in the blank, 5 matching, and 6 true or false questions.
Don't Delete Me
Fourth graders explore genetic disorders, which can be caused by a malfunction in a particular chromosome and how these can cause genetic mutation.
Students examine the concept of homology by observing their shoes and those of their classmates. They summarize the observations of everyone's shoes relating it to chromosomes in cells. They share their observations with the class.
Eighth graders interpret the genotypes and phenotypes, then pair up chromosomes.
AP: Chapter 15: The Chromosomal Basis of Inheritance
AP biology course-takers peer into the workings of inheritance with this instructional activity. They examine the Chromosomal Theory of Inheritance, Morgan's fruit fly experimentation, and sex-linked genetic traits. Vocabulary definitions and critical-thinking questions are included in this four-page comprehensive assignment.
Genetics 4 Mutations
Students identify and illustrate how changes in DNA cause mutations and evaluate the significance of these changes. They illustrate a chromosomal mutation such as duplication, deletion, inversion, and translocation.
Ninth graders discover where their physical appearance and personality traits come from. For this genetics lesson, 9th graders learn about cells, chromosomes, DNA and genes. Students discover where genes come from as well as dominant and recessive traits.
Tenth graders investigate the placement of chromosomes in a karyotype and look for any disorder that may be present. The interactions and their affect on the behavior of the entire system is examined.
Gene Regulation Mechanisms
Students explore genetics. They discuss how chromosomes and/or genes are regulated during the life of an organism. In a lab setting, students compare and contrast the genomic regulation of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells using manipulatives. They complete a fertilization lab and discuss the synthesis of DNA.
How Do Cells Reproduce?
Young scholars discuss the importance of reproduction of cells. They identify and describe the stages of Mitosis. They discover what happens to chromosomes and DNA during reproduction.
