Our differentiated vocabulary lessons are perfect for your students as they learn about dominant and recessive traits/genes and how they are inherited from our parents.
The readings are the same for below and above level readers but the questions are differentiated. Students don't even need to know that they are receiving work that is different from their peers as they read about the science of heredity.
This Genetics Differentiated Vocabulary Lesson is perfect for:
* Below level readers- ESOL students or those that require scaffolding and support as the vocabulary terms are bold face in the reading and the questions are simplified with matching or recall activities.
* Above level readers- Honors, challenge or AP students as the vocabulary terms are not in bold, students use graphic organizers, make their own definitions, and answer extension questions which require inference skills.
We have vocabulary sheets for all biology/life science topics:1. Scientific Method
Buy this lesson on its own or GO BIG and buy it in our 4-5 week Genetics Bundled Unit which comes with a 115+ PowerPoint slide presentation and 160+ handouts for teaching Genetics and Heredity in your classroom.
