Week 20 Meiosis and DNA


1/20/15
QFD: Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential. Winston Churchill
Today’s Essential Question: Can you draw a sequence map explaining the stages of meiosis?
Today’s learning objective: LS1.A: STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
How do the structures of organisms enable life’s functions?
A central feature of life is that organisms grow, reproduce, and die. They have characteristic structures (anatomy and morphology), functions (molecular-scale processes to organism-level physiology), and behaviors (neurobiology and, for some animal species, psychology). Organisms and their parts are made of cells, which are the structural units of life and which themselves have molecular substructures that support their functioning. Organisms range in composition from a single cell (unicellular microorganisms) to multicellular organisms, in which different groups of large numbers of cells work together to form systems

1) Day 1 of 2 Skits on mitosis : Students will develop a short skit to demonstrate their understanding of Meiosis (groups 2-4) Each group will be assigned 1-2 stages of meiosis… Demonstration can include visuals such as powerpoints or pictures
