1.
Review the Learning Targets for each activity. They are the guides to what you are
supposed to be learning. If you don’t know them, then make sure you go back, review,
and/or get help. Help can come from the book, your science notebook, peers, online
research, or Mr. Groom.
2.
Use the online book. Look at the analysis questions for each of the activities. Can you
get help!
3.
Go through your notebook. Carefully review highlighted vocabulary words. Do you
understand them? How do they fit in to the Learning Targets?

Show Me the
Genes!
I can appreciate that Mendel was ahead
of his time when developing his ideas of
heredity.
I can explain who Gregor Mendel was and
what he discovered about heredity by
breeding pea plants.
I can explain what a chromosome is.
I can explain the role that chromosomes
play in the inheritance of genes.
Other Big Questions:

division?
 What process is necessary to make sex
cells? Why are the number of
chromosomes split in half to make sex
cells?
