Who Am I and Why is not intended as a source of information for teachers who are uneducated in the area of genetics; however, background information resources are
provided. This unit does provide a much needed idea bank of classroom activities for the teacher who wants to give her students a varied, rich, hands-on environment for very little cost.
The unit places science-based activities next to social development activities in an effort to provide a humanistic and sensitive approach to a subject area that can otherwise become emotionally complex for young learners.
All of the books listed as learner resources can be obtained at any major bookstore chain.
(Recommended for Science/Social Development, grades 1-4)
