7th Grade (SCI) Life Science Standards [LS3] Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits
SCI-MS.LS3.02.mm Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction ends with offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation (mitosis and meiosis).
Student Learning Targets:
I can compare and contrast meiosis and mitosis.
Skills (Performance) Targets
I can draw and label the phases of the cell cycle (in a body cell)
The Student can ...
... with help, demonstrate a partial understanding of some of the simpler details and processes (Score 2.0 content) and some of the more complex ideas and processes (Score 3.0 content).
... demonstrate no major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and processes but exhibits major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and processes (Score 3.0 content).
recognize or recall specific terminology.
“The Standard.” ... demonstrate no major errors or omissions regarding any of the information and processes that were end of instruction expectations.
draw and label the phases of the cell cycle (in a body cell) emphasizing the movement of chromosomes.
compare and contrast Meiosis and Mitosis.
Sample Activity: students make a model of mitosis and relate the starting genetic material to the ending genetic material. students use a model of meiosis to show how sexual reproduction results in offspring with a unique genetic combination .
... demonstrate in-depth inferences and applications regarding more complex material that go beyond end of instruction expectations.
