Science: Students are beginning genetics with a discussion on genotypes, phenotypes, and Punnett Squares. Test over this material will be on Monday 4/13. We will also be researching advances in genetics. Students will be assigned an argumentative essay about genetic engineering which will be due Friday 4/17. We will also be getting ready for our field trip next week with a review on ice cores. Permission slips will sent home this week. I still need a few parent volunteers (see previous posts for more details).
