Science: Grebnesors

October 5th, 2016
For the unit this month in science, we have been learning about genes and how they are passed on from generation to generation. The picture below is a grebnesor, a paperclip unraveled with five marshmallows stuck on, with toothpick legs and feet, and a candy corn nose. How we incorporated genes with grebnesors is some of the different genes were five or four marshmallows, red or yellow horns, and a candy corn or jelly bean or Hershey's kiss nose. You had different color chips and traded with people to get your new and different grebnesor and tracked the genes that stayed in the family, and the ones that didn't. We are learning a lot about traits and how cells make us into us.
