Sexual Reproduction

.
Summary:
Today we studied the other kind of reproduction… the awkward kind of reproduction… sexual reproduction. We defined it as “a type of reproduction by which offspring arise from two parent organisms; each parent creates a sex cell with one mixed copy of each chromosome, then the cells are combined to form a brand new organism.” We started by discussing the human example (without too much detail!) and then students moved on to researching other examples. These included dragonflies, flowers, and even the gastric brooding frog. A copy of the worksheet is posted below.
