I made this project for my 7th grade class as an end-of-unit assessment in genetics and heredity. It was a major success! Students enjoyed creating their own "alien offspring" based on a selection of traits from the parent organisms.
This packet includes project instructions, project grading criteria/rubric, student activities sheets, and an extra credit assignment. It provides a thorough review and reinforcement of punnet squares and genetic concepts such as pure, hybrid, recessive, dominant, genotype, and phenotype.
