Product Description

In this product you will have access to sort cards representing the following traits:

  • Broken Bone, Eye Color, Curly Hair, Colored Contacts, Freckles, Language, Likes Cats, Painted Nails, Pink Hair, Skin Color

You will also have access to 2 different handouts in addition to a Teacher's Key:

  • One where students decide if the trait may be Acquired, Inherited, or BOTH
  • One where the students decide if the trait is Acquired or Inherited

For each trait students must:

  • Determine what type of trait it is
  • Justify their argument
  • Students will also be able to reflect on what they worked with by developing/brainstorming a new Acquired and Inherited Trait with associated justification.

Sort Cards are excellent tools to assess student learning. This visual and hands on activity may be used with small groups or for individuals. It acts as a study aid that involves critical thinking as students connect various traits to their vocabulary words. These Heredity sort cards may be used traditionally where all four cards are matched together, or they may be used in one of the following ways:

1. Matching with Differentiation: Simplify and choose how you want students to match cards..etc:

  • Determine if traits are simply Acquired or Inherited (with justification)
  • Determine if traits may be Acquired, Inherited, or both (with justification)

2. Print in color and hang as a useful word wall

3. Hang cards around the room and have students work in a Gallery Wall Style

4. Create flashcards - Reusable by laminating, hole punching, and placing on a key ring

5. Cut and paste into notebooks!

6. Have students color in the images while writing out their arguments
