Product Description
This project asks students to create a creature and their genes to learn the differences between Mendelian genetics, incomplete dominance, co-dominance, multiple alleles, and x-linked traits. Students have gotten really creative with this project when I have used it in my classroom. I have seen Pig-Sharks, Mermaids, Pencils, and more as creatures. While it allows students to be creative it still requires them to learn the content. It gives them creative freedom, but holds them to high standards. This project is designed for PreAP or AP level, but could be modified by adjusting the rubric.
