Oswald Avery, born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on October 21, 1877, helped make one of the most important scientific discoveries of all time. During his career as a scientist and bacteriologist, he was able to help prove that DNA is the material that passes on certain qualities and features through heredity. He studied the DNA of certain diseases, showing how they could pass qualities on to later generations of bacteria. On our worksheet today, we’re going to take a look at which of our qualities are part of our DNA and what parts are not and see God’s wonderful plan in both.
