The Code introduces the reader to the science of genetics in an accessible way. It explains that individual characteristics are the result of the combined DNA “code” that people get from their birth parents. The book discusses the difference between inherited and acquired characteristics, providing several familiar examples.The reader is invited to consider what characteristics all humans have and which characteristics make each of us unique. http://www.scienceandliteracy.org/units/va#5

Gary's Sand Journal begins with Gary Griggs, a shoreline scientist, sharing how he uses the properties of sand as evidence to determine the sand's origin and composition. The book ends with a picture of mystery sand and a challenge for the reader to use the evidence in the picture to make inferences about the mystery sand's origin and composition. http://www.scienceandliteracy.org/units/ss#5
