This is a lesson powerpoint correlating with Georgia Performance Standards for 5th Grade Science: S5L2. It is a 15 slide powerpoint including kid-friendly definitions of the following genetics terms: heredity, genes, genetics, chromosomes, DNA, traits, inherited traits and learned behaviors. The powerpoint includes animation, a link to a related brainpop video and a few star wars characters. I have also included a pdf version of the powerpoint, unfortunately animation does not work in pdf.
Also there are correlating guided notes that may be downloaded for free:
