Heredity And Environment

Students complete a pre-test on the relationship between heredity and the environment. As a class, they write down descriptions of themselves and identify which traits can be changed and not changed. In groups, they determine which genes are dominant and recessive and develop a model of DNA. To end the lesson plan, they research a genetic disorder and write a geneotype for each member of the class.

Lesson Planet has helped me a lot with my previous grade levels from K-6. Now I am reinstating my membership because I know it can help me more with my middle school special education classes.
