Dominant VS Recessive Genes Powerpoint presentation

Dominant VS Recessive Genes Powerpoint presentation

A PowerPoint Show explaining the difference and probability of each trait in a Punnett Square. With details on side. Great visual of flower trait probability included. Editable! Standards:Organisms and environments. The student knows that reproduction is a characteristic of living organisms and that the instructions for traits are governed in the genetic material. The student is expected to: (A) define heredity as the passage of genetic instructions from one generation to the next generation; (B) compare the results of uniform or diverse offspring from sexual reproduction or asexual reproduction; and (C) recognize that inherited traits of individuals are governed in the genetic material found in the genes within chromosomes in the nucleus. This lesson is student-centered meaning: --it allows you to become a facilitator --happier teachers! --happier students! --happier administrators!

Early humans in the Stone Age, what they were like and how they evolved

Early humans in the Stone Age, what they were like and how they evolved

This is a whole block of work on early humans, which covers both the history topic Stone Age to Iron Age Britain, and also touches on human evolution, so could be adapted for Year 6. It was developed for the Coping with Climate: Legacy of Homo Heidelbergensis project run by the Universities of Reading and Brighton by Schools Prehistory and Archaeology. The resources also take in a number of other hominin species and start to ask the question what makes us human? Were other hominin species human? Did earlier species wear clothes, make fire, make art, have language? The resources also explore how archaeologists, palaeogeneticists and other scientists try to work out the answers to these questions. There are lesson plans and supporting resources available as PDFs, Word documents, and PowerPoint presentations including image banks, guides for running practical activities and experiments, and fact sheets on these ancient human species. They’re all free to download, so take a look, use them and send us feedback!

Evolution and Inheritance - Who Wants to be a Millionaire Quiz

Evolution and Inheritance - Who Wants to be a Millionaire Quiz

Suitable for year 6. I have created this presentation as a nice start or end to the unit Evolution and Inheritance in science. It included 15 questions stemming from evolution, inheritance, adaptation and fossils. It also includes some questions based on working scientifically towards the end, questioning definitions such as 'independent variable' and so forth. The questions get increasingly harder and are equipped with all sound and familiar layout of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
