I developed this activity as a supplement to our unit on DNA and heredity. This smartboard activity matches a missing child to his/her parents. Students will use what they know about hair color, skin color, etc. to determine who they think the child belongs to. Some choices are very obvious, others a little tricky! There can be more than one correct answer on some slides. However, at the end is a "family gathering" so students can check to see if they matched the correct children to parents. Included in this smartboard activity is two YouTube links to songs. The first song is called the "Genetics song" and the last one is a song about DNA. You can swap out the songs with other links if you wish, I thought these were the most appropriate to the level of my students.
This lesson is great for Special Education teachers who have to introduce the unit on Heredity and DNA at a very simple and basic level.
