Distance Learning LS3.A LS3.B Variation of Traits Science Doodle PowerPoint


SKU: 4576025 Category: Tags: , ,


Science Doodles are so great for memory using visuals, it taps into parts of the brain not often used in science, increases understanding of vocabulary, generates great discussions and allows students to show off their artistic skills! I also include a PowerPoint/Google Slide Show for lecture or flipping the classroom! The slides are simple, easy to use, they have links to engaging videos, links to websites that scaffold and deepen the content. And it’s editable! This is a no prep resource! All you have to do is print one per student and put the key up on the screen when they are done! I put the PowerPoint/Slide show in my Google classroom and my students do it for homework or a sub.

Please note: These Science Doodles are not just copy and fill in the blank worksheets. STUDENTS MUST THINK! This is why you get an editable PowerPoint with lots of slides and information you may or may not need, it’s just more options for you! So you may have to do some editing to fit your needs and your student’s needs.

This resource is now Distance Learning optional! You get a link to make a virtual copy for Google Classroom!

You have some options as to how you can use the doodle notes:

1-You can use the PowerPoint to lecture as students fill the doodle notes in.

2-Post the PowerPoint on your website and students can fill them in for homework.

3-Use them for a subplan.

This resource has the following NGSS Standards:

LS3.A: Inheritance of Traits: Genes are located in the chromosomes of cells, with each chromosome pair containing two variants of each of many distinct genes. Each distinct gene chiefly controls the production of specific proteins, which in turn affects the traits of the individual. Changes (mutations) to genes can result in changes to proteins, which can affect the structures and functions of the organism and thereby change traits. (MS-LS3-1)

LS3.B: Variation of Traits: In addition to variations that arise from sexual reproduction, genetic information can be altered because of mutations. Though rare, mutations may result in changes to the structure and function of proteins. Some changes are beneficial, others harmful, and some neutral to the organism. (MS-LS3-1)

NGSS Cross Cutting Concepts (CCC)

Structure and Function: Complex and microscopic structures and systems can be visualized, modeled, and used to describe how their function depends on the shapes, composition, and relationships among its parts; therefore, complex natural and designed structures/systems can be analyzed to determine how they function. (MS-LS3-1)

Cause and Effect

Phenomena may have more than one cause, and some cause and effect relationships in systems can only be described using probability. (MS-LS4-4),(MS-LS4-5) (MS-LS4-6)

This resource has the following concepts:
