Activity – “Inherited-learned”
The students are divided in pairs and each pair is given a worksheet “Inherited-learned”, followed by instructions that there are certain behaviors that are inherited from birth. However, most of the behaviors people learn during their lifetime.
On the worksheet there are several examples of behavior that refer to either some people or all of the people. The pair should read them, decide and mark “X” in the column they think the behavior belongs to, either inherited by birth or learned during lifetime. Once they have finished, the teacher asks them why they have made that particular decision, and if necessary makes corrections. Each pair shares only one statement.
