Cell Part Functions & Inherited Traits

There are 3 activities. One activity has the students make a cell model that demonstrates the function of the cell membrane. Another activity demonstrates cellular respiration of a yeast cell. The final activity has the students model and evaluate 3 different hypotheses to show how traits are inherited. #VegasPBS-SCIE510
