So we are moving along nicely, good pace on this last unit. I think we are track for getting to where we need to be. I am also very happy to see how much independent lab work we were able to do. I believe you are all doing exceptionally well and I feel like the Biology is starting to make more sense.
Now, we are moving into the more fundamental structure and usage of DNA. We know how genes work, we know how they express traits but what we haven't covered is the mechanics of DNA. This gets really interesting. It is like CSI code work. To help keep you on track we are going to be using 2 guided reading assignments. They are below. We will start with Chapter 16 and then finish Chapter 17. I am feeling the need for a bit more creativity, so I may throw in a Biotechnology Project to finish up the unit...we will see.
Sunday - Tests back, Intro to DNA
Monday - DNA 1 (Chapter 16) and corrections due
Tuesday - DNA continued
Wednesday - Building DNA
Thursday - Finish DNA 1
