This is a fun way to teach or reinforce Punnett squares. Students will be creating an alien based on genotypes picked by tossing a coin. Then use those genotypes to draw an alien. Once everyone has their alien, they will then "breed" their aliens to produce offspring.
Students can use this activity to learn about...
- Punnett squares
- Genetics and Heredity
It is also a great tool for interdisciplinary lessons incorporating math (probability), science (genetics), and art (drawing).
As always, please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns!
