Genetics Unit – Lesson 6

Today we had a lively discussion of the effects of nature and nurture on various traits.  We realized that the information encoded in our genes might make us appear and think a certain way, and yet our environment also plays an important role in making us who we are.  The discussion transitioned to Lesson 6: mitosis and meiosis.  Our previous emphasis on DNA replication and the vocabulary associated with the project from Lesson 1, coupled with the videos of DNA replication from Lesson 2, all created the foundation for readily understanding cell division.
