Part 2 deals with mitosis, meiosis, and cloning. It is advised that a student take Part 1 prior to this course however it is not mandatory. If a student already knows about Punnett squares, the basic structure of a cell and DNA, then this class will be the next stepping stone to further their understanding of Genetics. Due to these classes involving labs, I do prefer ALL students to have their video cameras turned on. I can assist them by viewing what they are doing. I also would like a...
Students will learn how mitosis, meiosis, cloning and GMO's all involve Genetics.
I've taught Genetics for thirty-five plus years to students ranging from second grade to high school.
No homework unless the assignment wasn't completed in class.
Day 1 and 2 Supplies: Students will need to print out the templates for Mitosis and Meiosis for the first two lessons. They will need two different color yarn or pipe cleaner pieces that are one inch in length. They need about 10 of each color. For Meiosis we will use two different color markers. Print the following: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1A2Nsg22-CZ1JPm_vLLp-Qlif2qna7jGqpn4NMa6upaM/edit?usp=sharing They will need a medium size onion (or green onions) and a cup of water that it can sit on top of. Toothpicks may be required. A metric ruler will also be needed. Day 3: Bring pipe cleaners, scissors, a sheet of computer paper, and tape. Day 4: Let your child bring 3 veggies or fruits to class, preferably with the stickers still on them. Students will need a cutting board and a knife. (If you feel your child cannot cut independently, then slice it in half prior to class.)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner's progress is assessed orally.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I do use Youtube videos that may have questionable ads. Otherwise, I do have them pre-empt them to start without ads whenever possible. Meiosis does involve sex cells such as eggs and sperm. These terms will be mentioned in this lesson. Students will be handling a sharp knife so they may need special supervision on Day 3. ***There is a possibility that we may discuss how manipulating Genetics can be beneficial or harmful to our environment or society. One such topic may be human cloning. *This may be a sensitive topic. I will use my judgment when assessing the students' maturity. I may not discuss this at all.
If you would like to check out a book on Cloning from the library to further investigate this topic, there is a book by Great Medical Discoveries Series "Cloning" by Don Nardo copyright 2002. This would be a great book to read after taking this course. :)
Energetic and Engaging!
