In this unit, students will learn that the growth of organisms and survival of populations is due to both genetic and environmental factors. Genetic and environmental factors play a role in the successful reproduction and growth of organisms. Students will make a scientific argument based on evidence to support the idea that both genetic and environmental factors affect growth and reproduction.
This resource is aligned with the following standard:
Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms.
This resource includes:
- An informative slide show
- Strategic notetaking guide
- Three scenario pages
- Follow-up pages
- Making an argument from evidence
- A quiz
Students will read facts about three different species and determine the genetic and environmental factors that affect reproduction, growth, and survival.
