In this heredity worksheet, learners will create 3 Punnett squares to determine the genotype and phenotype of the offspring from specific breedings. Then students will answer 7 true or false questions based on chromosomes and sex-linked traits. Then learners will answer 4 short answer questions about environmental influences on gene expression.
In this biology review worksheet, students complete 50 multiple choice questions on the stages of mitosis and meiosis. They compare and contrast the two.
Students discover life science by identifying the reproductive process. In this pregnancy lesson, students read text which discusses the responsibility required to create a child as well as the economical and social means to raise one. Students answer study questions regarding pregnancy prevention and contraception use.
Take a critical thinking approach to comparing mitosis and meiosis with this set of questions. Budding biologists describe chromatids and homologous chromosomes. they identify whether different processes occur during mitosis, meiosis, or both. There is a block of print referring to a missing diagram, but finding an appropriate diagram to add or removing the instructions altogether would be worth your while since the questions are quite valuable.
In this genetic disorders worksheet, students complete punnett squares for six different human genetic disorders. They predict the outcome of the offspring including the phenotypes and genotypes of each.
Students explore DNA microarrays. In this genetics lesson, students model DNA microarrays that are used by scientists. Students work to determine levels of breast cancer genes in patients. They will determine the treatment required based on their findings.
Students build their own DNA molecules using candy. In this science instructional activity, students build DNA molecules using licorice and gumdrops. The instructional activity includes the use of streaming videos from the teacher's domain.
Simulate the passing of genetic traits with this instructional activity. Working with a partner, pupils flip a coin to determine characteristics: gender, face shape, chin features, hair patterns and color, eye spacing, and more. A data chart is provided for them to keep track of results. Finally, learners draw the offspring and answer critical-thinking questions about the experience and how it relates to genetic inheritance. Though some of the fonts are fuzzy, this is an amusing activity that is sure to reinforce genetics concepts.
In this science worksheet, students read about cells, chromosomes, and genes. Students order the following items from largest to smallest: cells, chromosomes, DNA, genes, and bases.
This nine-page biotechnology resource contains six pages of questions regarding DNA technology. Questions cover cloning, restriction enzymes, the polymerase chain reaction, different techniques, the human genome project, and more. The last three pages of this resource is an outline of what we have learned and what is yet to uncover about the human genome sequence. Since information was gathered in 2005, this portion may need updating. Otherwise, the questions are pertinent to your advanced biology course.
Students predict the probable mode of inheritance from a pedigree diagram showing phenotypes. They study the genetic basis for Mendel's laws of segregation and independent assortment. They give a Power Point slide show demonstrating the Pedigree Lab.
Some basic descriptions of DNA and the appearance of structures in a bacteria are included along with great diagrams.  The presentation has clear, but detailed slides, and your students will find the information about Gram staining easy to follow.  
The metaphors used here to describe the "cut and paste" procedures for genetic engineering will really help your biologists in their understanding of restriction enzymes and DNA.  The uses of genes that are isolated and incorporated into plasmids are discussed and will help your students learn the real life opportunities and application of biotechnology.
The concepts here cover the gamut of biotechnological engineering. Information is given about plasmids and genetic manipulation. After reviewing genetic engineering, this slide show would be useful to recap some of the main procedures.
Observation of sister chromatids is possible as students culture and stain mammal tissue cells.  
Students compare differences in amino acids in the beta hemoglobin from representative primates, complete a matrix of those differences, and from these data, construct and interpret cladograms as they reflect relationships and timing of divergence.
Students research one of the many types of viruses. They create a 3-D model of the virus they researched with graphics software.
Eighth graders are able to define meiosis. They are able to compare and contrast meiosis and mitosis. Students are able to state the phases of meiosis. They complete a K-W-L chart on meiosis and mitosis. Students talk about meiosis and sexual reproduction and give definitions.
This exercise implores biology learners to think through the phases of mitosis, and gives them a sweet snack at the end! They begin by twisting apart creme-filled cookies and using the icing as a cytoplasm, if you will. Colored candy sprinkles make up chromosome pairs, which learners line up on the icing to model where they appear in each phase. This simple, but engaging activity is sure to make an impression when studying mitosis. Follow-up questions are included.
Students investigate mitosis and meiosis. In this biology lesson, students create an animation movie using clay showing the phases involved in mitosis or meiosis by moving the chromosomes and centrioles.
