Forensics Unit

After CRT’s we will be learning about Forensics and Genetics. Some of the activities we will be doing include building a DNA puzzle, extracting DNA from split peas, fingerprinting, mock blood type lab, Punnett squares, and a squid dissection.

Here’s a link to the Cracking the Code of Life movie that we will watch as part of the introduction to the unit.
