NGSS : HS 3-2 Make and defend a claim based on evidence that inheritable genetic variations may result from: (1) new genetic combinations through meiosis, (2) viable errors occurring during replication, and/or (3) mutations caused by environmental factors.
Essential question of the day : compare and contrast the various types of mutations in a paragraph
Today’s learning objective : students will know and understand how and when various mutations occur

QFD: A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is your mirror.
NGSS : HS 3-2 Make and defend a claim based on evidence that inheritable genetic variations may result from: (1) new genetic combinations through meiosis, (2) viable errors occurring during replication, and/or (3) mutations caused by environmental factors.
Essential question of the day : describe a somatic mutation and how it differs from a germline mutations?
Today’s learning objective : students will know and be able to :
Building a model of a mutation
1) investigate one of the various types of mutations and describe in a paragraph the changes in the DNA for your organism.. Be specific
2) build a model of the DNA for your organism using any household objects
3) evaluate how this mutation could affect a organism on earth
4) build a model of your organism and be able to demonstrate and describe the mutation to class
