Description

Today we studied what is perhaps the most important topic in Unit 3: DNA. We started off by reading the famous 1953 article by Watson & Crick (posted here). It was a difficult read and certainly was not written for 8th graders. But I like them to see the article and I like to impress upon them how important that piece of paper was. That single page of writing has probably saved millions of lives!

After the read-through, we went through a PowerPoint (posted above) that explained DNA in simpler terms. We discussed where DNA is located, it’s shape, and how cells use it to build things. It was certainly a lot of take on in one day, but I think it was well worth the slog.

NGSSMS-LS3-1
Develop and use a model to describe why structural changes to genes (mutations) located on chromosomes may affect proteins and may result in harmful, beneficial, or neutral effects to the structure and function of the organism. Emphasis is on conceptual understanding that changes in genetic material may result in making different proteins. Assessment does not include specific changes at the molecular level, mechanisms for protein synthesis, or specific types of mutations.
NGSSMS-LS3-2
Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation. Emphasis is on using models such as Punnett squares, diagrams, and simulations to describe the cause and effect relationship of gene transmission from parent(s) to offspring and resulting genetic variation.
