What do we know?
I already know that I have half of my mom's genes and half of my dad's genes. I also know that there are two types of genes, dominant and recessive.
What do we want to know?
I want to know, "How did I get red hair, why am I Irish, why do I have blue eyes, why do I like sports...etc."
How will I learn the information?
To learn my information I will try and get in touch with a expert about genetics. I will look online, and look at family tree websites. I will also ask my family about what genes they have.
What did we learn?
I learned a lot of stuff in this unit, like I learned that I had a 50% chance of having red hair, but automatically I would have the red hair gene in me. I also leaned that you get your genes by what genes your parents have, and it all matters how you inherit them.
What action did we take?
To find my answer to my topic I researched a ton about, I watched video's of experts talking about genetics. I also set up a meeting with Mr. Solarz to teach me how to draw a Punnet Square.
What questions do we still have?
Some qeustions that I still have are, can two people who aren't twins have the same exact same genes.
Reflection: I love passion time in your class where you let us research about stuff that we really like. Some struggles I had were, it just really came down to the wire for me to finish my website. I also really liked taking the video's of your screen on screencast, and some of the other stuff you taught us how to do on the computers.
