UniCORN (Understanding Inheritance in Corn) is a innovative curriculum for third graders about plant life cycle, inheritance of traits, and trait variation. This NGSS-aligned curriculum uses corn as a model organism to enable students' understanding of the key concepts and includes the use of scientific models. In this session, we will present the main features of the curriculum as well as examples of the activities created for third graders. Furthermore, we will provide some findings about the impact of the curriculum on students' learning of the key scientific concepts.
