A poster explaining the difference between inherited and learned behaviors.
Inherited behaviors are characteristics or behaviors that have been passed from parent to offspring by genetics. Learned behaviors are actions or behaviors 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 behaviors.
Print out on tabloid paper and display in the classroom for students to reference throughout your organism and environment unit. Or print out on letter-size paper and have students glue into their science journal to reference at home or while working in small groups.
This teaching resource is available in two different versions:
