Description

Extend your heredity unit with some applied science with this guided reading on nature vs. nurture. These 3 pages will introduce the concepts of nature (genetics), nurture (environmental factors) and twin studies.

Students will classify various characteristics as determined by nature, nurture, or a little bit of both and will brainstorm genetic and environmental factors that would contribute to a person being extraordinary in their field. Lastly, students will answer comprehension questions and extension questions related to culturally relevant topics like obesity and cancer.

Purchase secures a ready to print PDF with answer key. On page 2 of this resource you will find a link to a student friendly Google Slide version of this file. You will be able to copy this file and use it with Google Classroom or any other paperless initiative.

Standards

NGSSMS-LS3-1
Develop and use a model to describe why structural changes to genes (mutations) located on chromosomes may affect proteins and may result in harmful, beneficial, or neutral effects to the structure and function of the organism. Emphasis is on conceptual understanding that changes in genetic material may result in making different proteins. Assessment does not include specific changes at the molecular level, mechanisms for protein synthesis, or specific types of mutations.
NGSSMS-LS1-5
Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms. Examples of local environmental conditions could include availability of food, light, space, and water. Examples of genetic factors could include large breed cattle and species of grass affecting growth of organisms. Examples of evidence could include drought decreasing plant growth, fertilizer increasing plant growth, different varieties of plant seeds growing at different rates in different conditions, and fish growing larger in large ponds than they do in small ponds. Assessment does not include genetic mechanisms, gene regulation, or biochemical processes.
