Reflection: Rigor Face Time - Section 2: Activity


Many kindergarten students are not exposed to genetics vocabulary and I think this is a shame. It is a perfect conversation to have with students as a way to open up conversation about how humans are alike and different. I will often focus on our similarities, such as we have ears, so all of the students feel connected. Then I will point out some subtle differences, attached or detached ear lobes, which make us unique.

This is also a nice topic for students to make a home/school connection by discussing features with their families.
