Life Science - Students will:
Identify differences between deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA). Examples: DNA - double helix, contains thymine; RNA - single stranded, contains uracil
Identifying Watson and Crick as scientists who discovered the shape of the DNA molecule
Identify functions of organelles found in eukaryotic cells, including the nucleus, cell membrane, cell wall, mitochondria, chloroplasts, and vacuoles. Example: mitochondria releasing energy for use in cellular respiration
Listing the sequence of the mitotic cell cycle
Identify the process of chromosome reduction in the production of sperm and egg cells during meiosis.
