Reproduction, Inheritance, and Meiosis: Meiosis Reading

In our last full day before Spring Break, students revisited their Punnett Square work from yesterday.  Focusing on question #2 from the worksheet, students were challenged to write a paragraph summarizing the question and its answer using the following 7 vocabulary words: phenotype, genotype, dominant, recessive, allele, homozygous, and heterozygous.  Students then shared their paragraph with their table partner as explained in the slides for today.  Finally, students read the second half of chapter 4 in the Inside the Cell book.
