Use this reading to really explain to students the difference between chromosomes, genes, and alleles. One of the most common misconceptions students have when studying genetics is the difference between a gene and an allele. So often teachers try to explain an allele as a "version" of a gene. But this really isn't correct! Assign this short 2 page reading and 1 question page to help your students understand the difference.
An answer key page is included.
