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.
