Product Description
These lessons and labs teach students how to make, analyze, and make predictions using genetic pedigree charts. One lesson and one lab heavily incorporate cross-curricula content. (History of royal families.) The lessons included are described below.

Day one lesson: Students learn what the symbols on a pedigree chart mean and how to read relationships in a pedigree chart. Classwork: Students learn about Charles II of Spain and how inbreeding doomed the Spanish Habsburgs.

Day two lesson: Students learn how to determine if a pedigree chart shows a dominant, recessive, or sex-linked recessive genetic disease. Classwork: Students analyze six pedigrees for different genetic diseases and state what type of inheritance is shown and how they know.

Day three lesson: Students learn how to assign genotypes to a pedigree chart and how to use a pedigree chart to make specific predictions. Classwork: Students use documents, including birth certificates, marriage certificates, and a patient entry form to produce a pedigree chart.
