AP Biology Unit 5 Review: Aligned to the AP Biology Course and Exam Description! Review and study resources for Heredity and Genetics. Works great as an AP Biology Test Review or Study Guide as students work though Unit 5. This resource is designed to help guide your AP Biology students to learn, study, and review all of the topics in Unit 5. Perfect for distance learning or in class!
Students will know exactly what College Board expects them to learn. Each AP Bio Essential Standard is written out on the left side of the paper, with focused, alined, open ended questions on the right side for students to work through.
Heredity and Genetics Topics include:
- 5.1 Meiosis
- 5.2 Meiosis and Genetic Diversity
- 5.3 Mendelian Genetics
- 5.4 Non-Mendelian Genetics
- 5.5 Environmental Effects on Phenotype
- 5.6 Chromosomal Inheritance
Product includes a link to a digital copy of this document. Open it in Google Docs and then make a copy for your own Google Drive to edit as needed!
PLUS you can share with your students to complete digitally!
Includes an answer KEY!
My AP Biology students benefit tremendously from having quick access to the Essential Knowledge standards and these guiding questions. After going through each set, they feel confident they are ready for the Test!
This resource can be used several ways:
- While going through a Unit as a working document, a learning guide, students can add to it as they read though the text book or listen to lecture
- To complete just before a Unit test as a study guide
- At the end of the semester to prepare for the AP Biology Exam
It is helpful to have students begin a Unit by going through the Essential Knowledge itself, highlighting key vocabulary. This gives them a good foundation to grow from, they know what to look for and what is important as they learn about, or review for the Unit.
When my students use these as review, I put them into small groups of three or four. They work together to complete the questions. Then students get into new groups and review their answers. I help guide them and help with questions that they can not come to an agreement on. This also works virtually with small groups of students on Zoom!
Check out this blog post describing all the ways the resource can be used in your classroom.
Save hours of time searching for resources to teach with! Purchase includes a list of links to 22 extra free resources! Arranged and organized for each unit topic. These are resources I use myself, so if you have questions about any of them, just ask! The list includes online interactive activities, video clips, and Lab ideas and classroom activities for your students that are freely available online.
