Inherited versus Learned Behaviours Poster

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 1 page | Years: 1 - 6

A poster explaining the difference between inherited and learned behaviours.

Inherited behaviours are characteristics or behaviours that have been passed from parent to offspring by genetics. Learned behaviours are actions or behaviours that animals are taught to perform or that are learned from their experiences.

Use this poster in the science classroom to help students differentiate between inherited and learned behaviours.

Print out on tabloid paper and display in the classroom for students to reference throughout your biological sciences unit. Or print out on letter-size paper and have students glue into their science book to reference at home or while working in small groups.
