This week we will be finishing up the introductory genetics unit that we did in connection with the Ellis Island Activity. Students made family trees and listed inherited and acquired traits of themselves, a parent, and a grandparent.

There was a quiz on Tuesday on Reproduction and Traits for Rise and Stretch. Rise and Stretch will be this Friday (2/17). Please remember to bring a silent reading book on any Friday that our Pod has Rise and Stretch.

Next week we will be starting our Adaptations unit.

Power Point lesson for this unit (use this to review or to fill in your notes if you were absent the day of the lessons):

Adaptations, Natural Selection, and Artificial Selection

Study Guide: Heredity/Inheritance
