Genetics Unit – Lesson 7

In Lesson 7, we learned about the Austrian monk Gregor Mendel and his pea plants.  Mendel’s careful study of how pea plants inherit traits allowed him to predict the existence of genes (he called them “particles”) nearly 100 years before DNA was discovered!  Students then practiced analyzing trait inheritance patterns using a Punnett Square worksheet.

Reminder: Students must upload the final draft of their Task to Ms. H’s Dropbox folder (the Final Draft folder in their class period folder) by midnight tomorrow (Friday, February 14).  Students who upload the Task before the deadline and who receive a grade of Proficient or better will receive a Golden Ticket!
