Inherited Traits, Acquired Traits, and Genetics Science Vocabulary Word Sort is a way to make assessment hands-on with your class. Students will cut and paste clues about inherited traits, acquired traits (learned behaviors), DNA, replication, and mutation. This is a great review at the end of a unit or when getting ready for End of Grade Tests. It is aligned with Georgia 5th Grade GPS standards, but may work for several grade levels and states.
A larger version is also included for group work opportunities, such as creating a review anchor chart.
