About This Quiz & Worksheet

The quiz and worksheet will evaluate your understanding of how the environment impacts genes. You will be tested on the study of the changing of phenotypes and the basic building blocks of humans.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

Use the worksheet and quiz to gauge your knowledge of:

  • What factors determine if a person's genetics are fixed or limited
  • The study of ways phenotypes that were once similar can differ
  • Biological building blocks
  • The relationship between genes and the environment

Skills Practiced

The tools will allow you to master the following skills:

  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding genes and interpret it correctly
  • Critical thinking - apply relevant concepts to examine information about the relationship between genes and the environment
  • Knowledge application - use your knowledge to answer a question about what factors determine if a person's genetics are fixed or limited

Additional Learning

To study more information about genes, go over the complementary lesson titled Gene-Environment Interaction. The lesson contains the following objectives:

  • Identify the importance of genes and their role in the human body
  • Review different interactions between genes and the environment
  • Learn about the difference between genotypes and phenotypes
