Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Genetics Unit, High School


Unit designed to support students while learning about the biology genetics unit in the regular classroom. The unit goes into more detail and gives more practice to students in the terms and concepts of the unit. There are quizlets for students to help them learn new vocabulary before the unit begins, as well as a prezi to help them understand the concept of codominance and incomplete dominance. This is meant as a re-teaching tool for students. 

Learning Targets: 
Explain where an organism gets it unique characteristics
Analyze how different forms of genes are distributed to offspring
Apply probability to predict traits.
Model how alleles segregate when more than one gene is involved
Make connections between Mendel work and present day understanding of genetics
