Product Description
This fast-paced simulation is a fun way to practice, reinforce, or review Punnett squares in a real-world based simulation. It uses a genetic disease found in Basset hounds to analyze the effects of inheritance.

In the simulation, students are business owners and they must trace the pedigree of their puppies for 10 generations. They use a die, two pennies and a worksheet to determine which genotype their puppies will have.

The activity also makes a good springboard to study other real-world applications, such as genetic counseling, or hemophilia and the Royal Family. It can easily be extended to develop pedigrees of student family traits, like color-blindness or tongue rolling.

This classroom tested activity is fun for all and a great learning experience. It is a teacher favorite at Kirksa's Corner and I hope you will love it, too.
