NGSS Standards covered by these resources:
MS-LS3-2 Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation. Emphasis is on using models such as Punnett squares, diagrams, and simulations to describe the cause and effect relationship of gene transmission from parent(s) to offspring and resulting genetic variation.
I’ve taught sexual and asexual reproduction every year that I’ve been teaching middle school life science. Why? Personally, I actually really enjoy the questions and discussion that it brings up. I find that a lot of my students have a lot of misconceptions when it comes to reproduction, and this mini-unit is a great way to address a lot of things that they’re curious about but haven’t known how to ask.
Additionally, it’s an excellent prerequisite for anything you want to do down the line with meiosis or inheritance because it gives that foundation that the students really need as far as understanding gametes and how parental DNA is passed on in a sexually or asexually reproducing species. The assessments are simple, the content is interesting, and it’s NGSS aligned!. What more could you ask for?
