Worksheets included in this bundle:
1. Introduction to Analyzing a Pedigree Chart
This is a worksheet over viewing pedigree charts. Students are presented with a pedigree chart and will go over the basics of reading it and interpreting data from it. Students will have to make assumptions about the disorder and review inheritance patterns.

2. Analyzing a Pedigree Chart
This is a worksheet that is similar to the previous. Students are given a pedigree chart. However, two of the individuals in the chart have question marks. Students are given 15 individuals, 13 of which are marked as unaffected, affected, or carriers. This particular worksheet overviews a recessive genetic disorder and students will be required to decipher information from the chart, determine the genotypes of the two unmarked individuals, analyze the information, and make predictions.

3. Filling out and Analyzing a Pedigree Chart - A
This is a worksheet, similar to the one previous. Students have a blank pedigree chart. They have the information in text form of which individuals are affected, carriers, and unaffected. First, they will have to fill out the pedigree chart with that information. Next, students will be required to decipher information from the chart, determine the type of genetic disorder, analyze the information, and make predictions. This particular pedigree chart overviews an X-linked disorder.

4. Filling out and Analyzing a Pedigree Chart - B
This is a worksheet, similar to the one previous. Students have a blank pedigree chart. They have the information in text form of which individuals are affected, carriers, and unaffected. First, they will have to fill out the pedigree chart with that information. Next, students will be required to decipher information from the chart, determine the type of genetic disorder, analyze the information, and make predictions. This particular pedigree chart overviews a recessive disorder.

5. Filling out and Analyzing a Pedigree Chart - B
This is a worksheet, similar to the one previous. Students have a blank pedigree chart. They have the information in text form of which individuals are affected, carriers, and unaffected. First, they will have to fill out the pedigree chart with that information. Next, students will be required to decipher information from the chart, determine the type of genetic disorder, analyze the information, and make predictions. This particular pedigree chart overviews a dominant disorder.

6. Genotype and Phenotype Practice
This is an activity where students are being introduced to determining genotype and phenotypes in preparation for Punnet Square practice and the rest of the instructional unit on genetics. Students are given a mouse with a certain set of features using the vocabulary that will be learned in a genetics instructional unit (such as homozygous, heterozygous, genotype, phenotype, dominant, recessive). Students will then be required to determine the dominant allele, recessive allele, pheontype, genotype, and if the animal is homozygous or heterozygous for the alleles.

7. Genotype and Phenotype Practice
This is an activity where students are further practicing genotype and phenotypes in preparation for Punnet Square practice and the rest of the instructional unit on genetics. This information is presented very simply in chart. Students will look at the genotype and/or any other provided clues and be responsible for completing the chart. There is a genotype, phenotype, and heterozygous or homozygous column of the chart that students are responsible for completing.

8. Punnett Square Practice
This is an activity where students are eased into setting up and completing Punnett squares and interpreting information from the square. They will be responsible for completing the Punnet square which is already partially constructed. Then, they will determine the percentages of the resulting genotypes of the offspring and determine the percentages of the resulting phenotypes of the offspring.

9. Punnett Square Practice 2
This is an activity where students are setting up and completing Punnett squares and interpreting information from the square. They will be completely setting up the Punnett square as that has not been partially constructed in this exercise. Then, they will determine the percentages of the resulting genotypes of the offspring and determine the percentages of the resulting phenotypes of the offspring.

10. Punnett Square Practice - Dihybrid Crosses
This is an activity where students are now using Punnett Squares for dihybrid crosses. There is a total of four crosses that will be completed, two of which have partially constructed Punnett squares to assist in easing students in to setting up the squares. They will be responsible for completing the Punnet square. Then, they will determine the percentages of the resulting genotypes of the offspring and determine the percentages of the resulting phenotypes of the offspring.

11. Punnett Square Practice - Multiple Alleles
This is an activity where students are setting up and completing Punnett squares and interpreting information from the square. This activity focuses on eyecolor as there are multiple alleles that determine eye color and act differently than other alleles. Students are given a brief section of information to assist them before beginning. They will be completely setting up the Punnett square as that has not been partially constructed in this exercise. Then, they will determine the percentages of the resulting phenotypes of the offspring.

12. Punnett Square Practice - Codominance and Incomplete Dominance
This is an activity where students are setting up and completing Punnett squares and interpreting information from the square. This activity focuses on traits that do not have complete dominance in the cases of codominance and incomplete dominance. STudents are given a brief section of information to assist them before beginning. They will be completely setting up the Punnett square as that has not been partially constructed in this excercise. Then, they will determine the percentages of the resulting phenotypes of the offspring.

13. Disorder Genetics and Probability
This is an activity that begins with a brief explanation of three genetic disorders, hemophilia, sickle cell anemia, and Von Willebrand disease. After learning about the inheritance patterns of these diseases, students will then be given a series of questions about people with these disorders and their children and be required to determine the probability of these disorders being passed down.

14. Blood Type Practice and Worksheet
This activity begins with a brief explanation of the inheritance patterns of blood types and how to interpret the alleles that code for blood types. Students will be given three individuals and their blood types as well as their spouse's blood types. They will then have to determine the possible genotypes, possible genotypes of their children, and possible phenotypes of their children. They will then be given two scenarios of paternity questions. They will have to use the limited information provided to determine if it is possible of paternity or not possible of paternity.

15. Crime Series - Swapped Babies
This is a laboratory that focuses on determining if two children were swapped at birth. Students will gain knowledge and competence in blood typing, detailed information on blood types, antigens, antibodies, genetics, inheritance patterns, and Punnet squares.
