Description

Every year as I teach biology the subject of twins inevitably gets brought up. What are twins? How are they formed? Assign this easy to check guided reading to extend your students' learning or as an introduction. Great for homework, reteaching, or sub plans!

Approximate Reading Level: 4-8th Grade

Vocabulary covered includes:

  • gamete
  • fertilization
  • egg, sperm
  • zygote
  • identical twins
  • fraternal twins
  • twin studies in genetics

Updated to include an extension to support reading and interpreting graphs. (An NGSS Anchoring Practice of Scientists and Engineers)

Uses for this product:

  • Ready to print Sub Plans
  • Flipped Classroom pre-reading
  • Whole or small group opportunity to model and teach Close Reading strategies and annotation
  • Differentiation - only assign graphing extension to higher achieving students
  • Differentiation - assign this reading only to students who have been identified as requiring reteaching
  • Interactive Notebooks: Print 2 pages in one and cut apart. Glue mini pages into notebooks with room for annotations on the side
  • Interactive Notebooks: Print entire PDF as a mini booklet and add to notebooks using these simple instructions.
  • Creation of Independent Work Packet for students who are not able to be present for direct instruction.

Your purchase includes a PDF download with answer key in both color and black and white. 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

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
NGSSHS-LS3-2
Make and defend a claim based on evidence that inheritable genetic variations may result from (1) new genetic combinations through meiosis, (2) viable errors occurring during replication, and/or (3) mutations caused by environmental factors. Emphasis is on using data to support arguments for the way variation occurs. Assessment does not include the phases of meiosis or the biochemical mechanism of specific steps in the process.
NGSSHS-LS1-4
Use a model to illustrate the role of cellular division (mitosis) and differentiation in producing and maintaining complex organisms. Assessment does not include specific gene control mechanisms or rote memorization of the steps of mitosis.
NGSSMS-LS3-2
Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation. Emphasis is on using models such as Punnett squares, diagrams, and simulations to describe the cause and effect relationship of gene transmission from parent(s) to offspring and resulting genetic variation.
