This worksheet is a quick introduction to genes and chromosomes using Teacher's Pet educational video for the genes and chromosomes . Video link is embedded in the worksheet.
There are fourteen questions that go along with the video, one review short answer that gets students to review what they just learned, and a higher order activity that gets students to design a 3-D model of the chromosome. I have given you an activity to help students make the 3-D model with paper in your classroom! I have also given you suggestions for helping your students make a 3-D model on their own, if you have a great group of kiddos who can run with building their own models.
This is a great worksheet for introducing middle school students to genes and chromosomes. It is also a great worksheet for high school students on a review basis.
