Inquiry-based unit aligned to the NGSS explaining how proteins are the intermediate between genes and traits. Students create and revised models to explain how Siamese cats get their coat coloration. Students explore the role of proteins in determining traits by computer simulations, a Jell-O lab, and hands-on activities and explorations. As featured in the January 2016 issue of NTSA's "The Science Teacher."
Included: Student sheets in PDF and editable .docx formats, teacher's guide with answer key and front matter explaining content and practices
