Product Details

Identifying living organisms is an essential skill in life science. Build a solid foundation for further study of living organisms using this concept attainment activity. Kit includes 20 cards with examples of both living organisms and nonliving material. Students gain concept attainment using the “Yes” and “No” header cards included with the kit. All cards are printed on colorful 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card stock and laminated for durability. Velcro Dot Tape or Magnetic Tape, available separately, may be used to display activity cards.

Performance Expectations

MS-LS3-1: Develop and use a model to describe why structural changes to genes (mutations) located on chromosomes may affect proteins and may result in harmful, beneficial, or neutral effects to the structure and function of the organism.
HS-LS1-1: Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins, which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.
HS-LS3-2: 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.
HS-PS4-4: Evaluate the validity and reliability of claims in published materials of the effects that different frequencies of electromagnetic radiation have when absorbed by matter.
