Year 11 Biology – Innate behaviour
February 13, 2018
This week at Assumption College English Program, the Year 11 Biology students have been studying “innate behaviour” with Mr Ash. During the week they have learned about the 3 different types of innate behaviour, and how they are inherited from our parents in DNA.
So that the Year 11 students could see this in action, we made a basic light / dark chamber and put insect larvae inside. By shining a bright light into one side, we observed their innate response to light which caused them to move away into the dark area. We then used this knowledge and applied to practice exam questions, to simulate the type of answers that will required in their final exam.
