4.7 探索遺傳 Exploring Heredity

STEM lessons + blocks

SAM Labs

Product Description

Students will work collaboratively to investigate heredity and how our parents genes combine to create our own unique genetic signature.

Students will integrate and exhibit learning by designing a system that demonstrates how allele combinations produce certain physical traits.

在本課程中,學生將協同研究遺傳以及我們的父母基因如何組合以創建我們自己獨特的遺傳特徵。

學生將通過設計一個系統來整合和展示學習,該系統展示了等位基因組合如何產生某些物理特徵。
