During the month of March, students will develop an understanding of what characteristics make an organism living and be able to classify organisms based on observable characteristics. We will also be discussing the process of evolution and how organisms have changed over time. From evolution, we will dive into the world of genetics! This can be a challenging unit for some students as we discuss heredity , chromosomes, and inheritance. They will gain an understanding of how their own physical traits were acquired and be able to also predict which traits are most likely to show by using punnett squares!
Below, you will also find PDF files of the notes that we take in class and the learning goals for the chapter that we are currently covering. Learning goals packets are given the day we start each chapter and are due the day we take the chapter test along with chapter vocabulary.
