What a great week! It all started off with a trip to the Bob Bullock museum in Austin. What a fun time! I will post the picture of the 7th graders in front of the big star at the museum. This week in science we have been wrapping up our unit on genetics. The kids had to flip a coin to determine the traits of their 'smiley'. The smileys were created in google draw. Some of the traits were green face, yellow, pointy ears, round ears, star eys or blast eyes, male and female. Based on the coin flip the kids determined whether or not the traits were dominant or recessive, heterozygous and homozygous. This created many questions... "how do people end of with 2 different color eyes?" How come my parents hair is dark and mine is blonde? All good questions and needed research to get them answered. So, look back in your family genetics and answer the questions, "who has a widows peak in the family?" "Who did I get my straight hair from, blonde hair, or blue eyes?"
Who in your family can rolll their tongue or make it clover
