I designed this set to have simple (I call them level 1 or level 2) pedigree questions that you can use for your struggling or lower level classes, but it also contains very challenging (level 3 or level 4) questions that could be used to challenge the top AP Biology student! There are 60 questions in all, so you can pick and choose which questions you want your students to use. You can also use my easy to edit template to create your own cards. I hope you enjoy this set!
*You can use task cards in a group or individual setting and differentiate which questions students answer based on their understanding level.
*You can have students work on one task card at a time, helping students who need help focusing to focus on one task at a time instead of getting bogged down in a long worksheet.
*Any game you play with flash cards you can play with these!
IN THIS PACKAGE:
1) Teacher Answer Key
that includes all the card numbers, questions, and answers in an easy to reference format.
2) Student Packet
with questions with blanks for practice and an answer key on the last page. I like my students to be able to study at home after we use these cards in class if they want. The worksheet can help them study or review before a test.

15 slides with 4 questions each and 15 slides with answers, ready to print so that answers will appear on the back of cards.
4) Fifteen Slide PDF of 60 Task Cards:
4 questions on each slide, ready to print so that the backs of your cards are blank
5) Editable: 4 slide Pedigree Genetics Question Template PowerPoint:
I know as a teacher I like the ability to make my own questions and answers easily, so I have also included an, that has a template where you can copy, paste, duplicate slides and type in your own questions and answers and card numbers. This template includes all 4 difficulty level borders for different types of questions and my beaker icon to place your card number in.
6) Editable: Blank Student worksheet with a table
that you can type in what card numbers you want your students to do. You can add rows and columns and differentiate for your students as much as you wish.
