PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Science literacy reading strategies are a great skill to teach when you have to be out. Good science reading at the high school level is difficult to find! Science teachers struggle to find lessons a substitute could help students do and here is a lesson they can!


Please note that this reading is shorter than my other science readings and is ideal for a shorter time frame. It works great for a fun lesson on a shortened class period day!

This mini-reading and carefully crafted diagram will answer a few questions all high school biology teachers get:

“How are identical and fraternal twins different?”
“Are identical twins truly IDENTICAL?”

This reading also explains the X inactivation process, a process that will fascinate your students and extend your students’ understanding past what the typical high school biology textbook covers. Epigenetics is an exciting and new field that your students will encounter often in the news and in their every day lives.

I suggest that you give this as a relatively challenging reading assignment after they have studied genetics. You could use it as a substitute plan if your students have been prepped a little beforehand.
