Unit Title: Heredity
Unit Time Frame: 3-4 weeks
During this unit, student will identify how
organisms inherit traits from parents.
Genetic traits are passed from one
generation to the next
--Identify and explain why inherited traits of living things
depend on genes.
--Differentiate between dominant and recessive traits.
--Interpret simple genetic crosses using Punnett squares.
--Predict patterns that emerge from simple genetic crosses.
--Conduct investigations demonstrating that the
phenotype of a genetic trait is the result ofgenotype
