Making Babies – Day 1

.
Summary:
Today we went on a field trip to see the movie Wonder. It was a fantastic film. When we got back, we completed the first day of our “Making Babies” project. Students paired up and assigned one partner as the mother and one as the father. Then they got Page 305 – The Code for Me (their genetic code) out of their binder. Then, by copying alternating lines of the code, they made sperm cells and egg cells. Each sperm cell contained only 23 chromosomes; they passed on a mixed version of each chromosome pair. The same was true for the egg cells. Each partner made two. Tomorrow, they will be ready to combine the cells and make their babies.
