NGSS: Next Generation Science Standards - 2nd grade 2-LS2-2 Develop a simple model that mimics the function of an animal in dispersing seeds or pollinating plants. This packet includes: *vocabulary wall cards (could be enlarged for poster) *ideas and original resources for teaching an engaging lesson *cut & paste correct order practice sheets *comic strip style sequencing for students to describe the order
Due to the Neanderthal genome project, we know that Europeans and Asians have Cro Magnon and Neanderthal ancestors. However, humans below the Saharan Desert do not posses any Neanderthal DNA. Now, scientists have created a complete DNA sequence of Africans. They found genetic evidence of an unknown extinct hominid ancestor of Africans not shared with non-Africans.
With a focus on literacy and collaboration, this activity teaches students about the importance of enzymes, DNA sequencing, fingerprinting, mutations that can happen if we smoke and even what it means to be a twin. | by Scaffolded Math and Science
