Mutations Interactive Lesson

Description

Are you tired of teaching with presentations that look like they were probably created on a computer running Windows 95? Are you ready to move past the “sit and get” style of whole group instruction? If you answered yes to either of those questions, then this resource is for you!

 

I spent almost a decade fighting to keep students entertained. By the end of the day, I was exhausted and the kids were bored. I created this line of interactive lessons to solve that problem for myself and hopefully for you too.

 

Keep your students engaged and accountable with this interactive, versatile mutations presentation. Embedded frequently within these colorful slides are multiple stopping points that require students to predict, reflect, connect, and think critically about the information being presented.

 

There are a variety of softwares you can use (such as Nearpod and Peardeck) that connect to Google Slides to ensure student participation. Alternatively, you could also simply assign each student a copy of this presentation and have them type in the slides directly.

 

Similarly, I want resources that could be used in person, face to face, hybrid, and virtual. My Google Slides lessons are designed to be compatible with multiple styles of teaching, and are perfect for teaching, reteaching, or even sending to absent students.

 

The topics covered in this presentation include:

  • causes of mutations
  • gene mutations (insertion, deletion, substitution, frame shift, and silent mutation)
  • chromosome mutations¬†(insertion, deletion, inversion, translocation)
  • outcomes of mutations¬†(good, bad, and neutral)
  • several¬†examples¬†and embedded¬†questions

 

Who is this resource for?

This resource can be used by classroom teachers, tutors, and parents of students in grades 6-9. It comprehensively covers the topics mentioned, and provides opportunities for student responses which can be implemented in a whole group lesson or assigned for homework.

 

How Can I use this Mutations Presentation?

  • Emergency sub plans
  • An independent work station in a set of stations
  • Flipped classroom pre-reading
  • Differentiation ‚Äď assign this presentation as reteaching for students who have yet to show mastery.
  • Homework
  • Creation of independent work for students who are not able to be present for direct instruction
  • Use as a square on a choice board

 

What’s Included?

Purchase includes a printable PDF file in color. On page 2 of this resource you will find a link to a student friendly Google Slide version of this file. You will be able to copy this file and use it with Google Classroom or any other paperless initiative.

NGSS Standards covered by this Mutations Presentation:

HS-LS3-2 Make and defend a claim based on evidence that inheritable genetic variations may result from (1) new genetic combinations through meiosis, (2) viable errors occurring during replication, and/or (3) mutations caused by environmental factors. Emphasis is on using data to support arguments for the way variation occurs. Assessment does not include the phases of meiosis or the biochemical mechanism of specific steps in the process.

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.

HS-LS3-1 Ask questions to clarify relationships about the role of DNA and chromosomes in coding the instructions for characteristic traits passed from parents to offspring. Assessment does not include the phases of meiosis or the biochemical mechanism of specific steps in the process.
