Product Description
How does the pattern of Mendelian Inheritance work? Why do I have traits that no one else in my family has?

Using two coins, students model random selection of alleles uncovering the inheritance pattern observed by Gregor Mendel. Each coin represents a gene – one coin (gene) from the mother and one coin (gene) from the father. The sides of the coins represent two possible alleles one can inherit – heads or tails.

Teacher guide and answer key included.

Can be used in conjunction with my other Genetics activities - Rolling Dice, Mendel's Work Webquest, Traits and Probability, and Can You Roll Your Tongue?.

Please provide a review with feedback. I'm always looking for ways to improve activities.
