Nature vs Nurture

Unit 5 was introduced with the following entry task:

In your lab notebook, list at least 5 traits that best describe who you are.

After responding to the entry task, students were assembled into groups of 2-3 students and together they debated whether a list of traits provided on a worksheet are inherited via nature, nurture, or both.  We came back together as a class so students could share their thinking and hear each others ideas.

Class concluded with the following assignment, due tomorrow:

Using your list of traits from the entry task, write an explanation about which of your traits are nature, which are nurture, and which are both.  Explain your thinking!
