This is a super fun game for practicing Punnett Squares in your genetics unit! Students use strategy and their knowledge of Punnett Squares to gain the most points and win the game. NO PREP! Print and go!

The game board describes three traits of a fictional Alien species - 

  • Blue skin (B) is dominant to Red (b)
  • Two eyes (T) are dominant to one (t)
  • Green hair (G) is dominant to white (g)

Two players take turns going back and forth, each connecting two dots with a line. If a player draws a line that completes a box, that player ‘captures’ the parental cross described inside the box. Students then work out the punnett square on their score sheet and tally up their points based on the four offspring in the punnett square. Points are noted on the game board! 

Students quickly learn that some Punnett Squares hold more points than others, which keeps them focused and interacting with content as they consider each move! 

The activity reinforces key vocabulary: heterozygous, homozygous, hybrid and purebred. Also, students must know that if the trait is recessive, the genotype must be hoomozygous recessive!

I usually set a timer, rather than letting them finish out the board. This adds a bit of ‘hurry’ to the game, students are more focused on gaining points as quickly as they can. Sometimes I offer candy or some other incentive to the top score or top 5 scores in the room for each round. 

Your students will ask to play again and again!

NGSSHS-LS3-3
Apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population. Emphasis is on the use of mathematics to describe the probability of traits as it relates to genetic and environmental factors in the expression of traits. Assessment does not include Hardy-Weinberg calculations.
