Inherited or Learned includes worksheets that mirror the power point presentation also available on this site. The worksheets are fit to a composition book size, so are easily added to a science interactive journal.
Students are able to follow the power point while filling in key words on the worksheets. The worksheets keep a high engagement level and give the opportunity for student to write the vocabulary words
My students enjoy this format. I have used it to introduce vocabulary and the subject area, but it is also a good way to review the ideas including genes, DNA, inherited and learned traits.
The worksheets and power point provide students with background information, and provide opportunities for group discussions.
This item includes a teacher key that follows the student sheet and power point, a fill in the blank vocabulary quiz, and a second quiz that asks students to decide if a behavior is inherited or learned.
