Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Students will understand how genes and traits are passed within a family. 
Students will understand how mutations impact genes and traits. 
Students will learn about specific genetic disorders that are both common and uncommon in today's world. 
MS-LS1-5. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms. 
MS-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. 
MS-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.
