Students anaylze how genes effect the way we look and research why genes inside of us do not show up on the outside. They also evaluate the difference between recessive and dominant genes.
In this science activity, students read 10 statements and 1 question about human genes. Students complete the statements and question by filling in the correct word from a list of 11 words.
Students examine how genes contribute to hereditary traits using a variety of resources. In this heredity and genes lesson, students read and discuss the assigned portions of Human Anatomy & Physiology by Elaine Marieb before accessing virtual resources at assigned web sites. They write a 5 page essay as an examination.
For this chromosomes and genes worksheet, students draw a cell and show what happens to the chromosomes when it divides. They answer questions about cell division.
So often, genetics worksheets focus on alleles and heredity. Here is one that focuses on the steps of the gene expression process. After reading a textbook chapter or listening to your lecture, AP biology buffs write short answers to questions about transcription in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. A concluding set of questions explores RNA splicing and post-transcriptional control.
After watching an engaging 13-minute video about the colorless blood of icefish, future ichthyologists examine icefish blood and non-icefish blood (blood samples are simulated with Karo syrup mixtures) to determine advantages of different blood viscosities in fish, depending on their habitat. This is designed as a demonstration, but could work well as a group activity. The included extension has pupils designing an experiment to represent their findings. Additional lesson plans are also available.
Students explore the control of expression of DNA into proteins which is divided into two main categories: transcriptional and post-transcriptional. They construct examples of the control mechanisms and discuss disease processes that result from the malfunction of these control mechanisms.
Ninth graders determine nucleotide sequences. They identify those base sequences that are normal, those that are normal variants and those that cause cystic fibrosis. Students use DNA nucleotide sequences to determine amino acid sequences.
Young scholars research the impacts of genetic research on homes, research laboratories, and hospitals. In this genetics lesson, students use the Internet to investigate the ways that genetics has affected our way of life. They present their findings to the class.
Students review the concepts of incomplete dominance, co-dominance and multiple alleles. As a class, they are introduced to the concept of sex-linked genes and how they are passed to offspring. To end the instructional activity, they examine possible problems with linked genes.
Seventh graders investigate the concept of genetics and the sex-linked genes. They conduct research using a variety of resources in order to increase comprehension of the subject matter. Students list the nine sex-linked genes and define why they are passed.
In this RNA and gene expression worksheet, students match the letter of the description that best matches the term as it relates to gene expression. Students also answer questions as it relates to the process of transcription and translation.
Students examine information about genetic research. In this research-based lesson, students consider information that is changing thoughts about human behavior and scientific research.
In this "Chromosomes and Genes" activity, students watch the movie and respond to 50 short answer and fill in the blank questions regarding information from the documentary.
Students review terms related to DNA structure and function. They complete a variety of worksheets in small groups or in pairs reflecting the unit's concepts regarding DNA. They submit their worksheets for grading.
Students work in teams with two boxes of beans (one with 100 red and one with 100 white beans) which represent genes. Students watch teacher place genotypes of parents on the board. Each student team counts out the appropriage numbers and colors of beans per box in the Pundett square. Student pairs pull two beans at a time from each box and arrange the pairs in rows and calculate the ratio of each combination.
In this Bill Nye genes video worksheet, students respond to 11 short answer questions regarding genes before they watch the video. Students watch the video and respond to the same 11 short answer questions regarding the video's content.
In this gene control in eukaryotes worksheet, students complete a table with information about the process of translation and transcription. Students also explain the process of post-transcription and the modifications involved.
Students study DeoxyriboNucleic Acid or commonly known as DNA and discover importance of DNA strand, chromosomes, and genes.
Fifth graders examine the difference between dominant and recessive genes, and what happens when genes are combined. They complete a worksheet on genetics after observing if they can wiggle their ears or roll their tongues. They determine the labeling system for genes using upper and lower case letters.
