Reproduction, Inheritance, and Meiosis: Mendel’s Pea Plants

We kicked off the new unit with a primer on heredity (courtesy of Crash Course – see below) and a historical tour of Gregor Mendel’s contribution to the field of genetics.  Slides for the day can be downloaded here.  I am thrilled that much of the discussion around Punnett Squares, as well as some of the vocabulary, are review for many of my students.  All students are encouraged to continue practicing unit vocabulary via the Quizlet link.
