Did you know that a combination of about 30,000 genes is what makes you the person you are? In Genes & Heredity, students will learn that genes are the tiny "instruction manuals" contained in the chromosomes of every one of our cells and that genes are responsible for our characteristic traits like hair color, eye color and height. Heredity is the passing of these traits from parents to offspring. Viewers will discover that genes and chromosomes are made up of DNA -- the chemical language that makes up those genetic instructions. Dominant and recessive traits, meiosis and mutations are also covered. Includes an intriguing experiment in which kids can actually see the DNA from peas! One of ten volumes in the Human Body in Action DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library in Action Collection. This title is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Standards for Life Science: structure & function in living systems, reproduction & heredity, regulation & behavior, and diversity & adaptations of organisms. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
