Hey, I'm Lindsay! I am majoring in Middle Childhood Math and Science. I just got married in June, and my husband's name is Andrew. I was born and raised in the Dayton area. My husband and I are youth pastors at New Life Church in Springfield. I love my relationship with Jesus Christ, music, diy projects, my plants, and dark chocolate. I am excited to become a teacher and make an impact on students' lives. "Science is not only a disciple of reason but, also, one of romance and passion." - Stephen Hawking

Something I have always found very interesting is studying acquired vs. inherited traits. When it comes to personality, athletic ability, musical ability, etc., how much is acquired and how much is inherited? This may be a great area to study with your class. If you make it a project for them to complete, you could allow them to choose a trait that they would like to research. This provides differ...

I am a student teacher and I am planning a unit in Genetics. One lab I have found that connects the inheritance of traits to probability and parents is found here: Students work in pairs and flip coins. Each student flips a coin and whether they land on heads or tails is what determines which allele they co...

5 Genetics in Action
I have always heard about using flies to study genetics. I love how this article lays out exactly how I can carry that out in my classroom.

5 Great Idea!
I love how this talks about a different way to review genetics, alleles, and genes. So many times, Punnet Squares are the main way that genetics are experimented with. Using the Toothpick Chromosomes, students see genetics in light of what is actually physically happening to cause certain traits to show up in an organism! I love this visual and definitely see using it in my classroom in the future.
