Week of April 17th in Science

Dear School Family,
 
This week in class we will begin to learn about how traits are passed onto offspring.  We will compare the differences between asexual and sexual reproduction.  We will examine, genetically speaking, the differences in offspring produced by asexual and sexual reproduction.  Next week, we will predict the traits of offspring using a Punnett square.
 
This week in science - 
Monday - April 17th - Student Holiday
Tuesday - Introduction to types of asexual reproduction
Wednesday - Investigate the advantages and disadvantages of asexual reproduction
Thursday - Investigate the advantages and disadvantages of sexual reproduction (genetically speaking)
Friday - Apply our newly learned information to different situations and begin to understand traits
 
Thank you so much for sharing your child with me this year!
 
Sincerely,
Mrs. Ullrich
