Nine multiple choice and three short answer questions make up this mitosis worksheet. Some of the questions must be answered by looking at diagrams of the cell division process and types of asexual reproduction. This is a well-rounded worksheet, neat and user-friendly. You will want to keep this on hand as a homework activity or quiz.
These two pages cover the gamut of topics regarding reproduction and DNA replication. Structures, processes, functions, and reasons for them are tested here. The questions are mostly multiple choice, but there are also a few short-answer questions requiring the application of knowledge
The various experiments and processes that were completed in the 20th century to further our understanding of DNA are summarized here. There are wonderful slides to popularize the scientists who dedicated their professional life to scientific research. The information about their work will educate and inspire students of biology and of science history.
Simulate the passing of genetic traits with this worksheet. 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.
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.
Play Jeopardy as you review what might possibly be an entire year's high school biology course! The vast variety of questions requires that you read through the slides to make sure that they all relate to your curriculum. You could make changes in individual slides as needed, which would most likely save you time in creating such an elaborate review game from scratch.
What you will find in this collection of slides is a comprehensive introduction to genetics. It is technically three separate slide shows: the first on general genetics concepts, the second on rules of inheritance, and the third on genetic disorders. Geared toward high school biology, this may provide material for several lectures in your genetics unit.
