Genetic Disorders Research Project Preview

Description

Looking for an extension activity for your DNA unit? Do you need a straightforward summative project that students can complete without too much teacher assistance? This genetic disorders project is the perfect resource for you!

 

In this project, students will combine their knowledge of DNA, chromosomes, and mutations to determine the causes of a relatively common genetic disorder. At the same time, they will research symptoms, treatments, and other relevant information about the disorder to raise awareness and inclusiveness.

 

Who is this resource for?

This resource can be used by classroom teachers, tutors, and parents of students in grades 6-9. Ideal for classrooms with internet access and student devices.

 

This project covers 29 human genetic disorders.

NGSS STANDARDS COVERED BY THIS DNA EXTRACTION LAB:

NGSS MS-LS3-1

Develop and use a model to describe why structural changes to genes (mutations) located on chromosomes may affect proteins and may result in harmful, beneficial, or neutral effects to the structure and function of the organism. Emphasis is on conceptual understanding that changes in genetic material may result in making different proteins. Assessment does not include specific changes at the molecular level, mechanisms for protein synthesis, or specific types of mutations.
