Raven Chapter 18 Guided Notes: Control of Gene Expression
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.

The Making of the Fittest: The Birth and Death of Genes
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.

Gene Regulation Mechanisms
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.

Sequencing the Cystic Fibrosis Gene: A Simulation
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.

Genetics- 9 Sex 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.

Understanding the Power of Genes
Students research the impacts of genetic research on homes, research laboratories, and hospitals. In this genetics instructional activity, students use the Internet to investigate the ways that genetics has affected our way of life. They present their findings to the class.

RNA and Gene Expression
In this RNA and gene expression worksheet, learners 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.

Beans and Genes/Genetic Probability
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.

Gene Control in Eukaryotes
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.

Genes, not Jeans
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.
