  1. Use “aliens” to cross homozygous and heterozygous alleles, in Punnett squares, to observe the resulting percentages of genotypes and phenotypes in this interactive genetics activity that can be inserted into a digital science notebook or printed Interactive notebook. There are two alien creatur
  2. UPDATED: Looking for a comprehensive, ready to go genetics project? This is an activity that I’ve been using for many years to cover MS-LS3-1 and MS-LS3-2 and the kids actually look forward to it as they come into middle school! By the time I finish this unit they do not need any other form of as
  3. A fun way to introduce genetic traits is to have the students observe their own bodies compared to their classmate’s traits. This gets them excited about their unit on inherited traits as part of MS-LS3-1 or HS-LS3. Now part of this bundle! GENETICS BUNDLE! 3 Interactive and Comprehensive Activit
  • Bundle Description
  • StandardsNEW

Here is everything you need to design a complete genetics unit starting with a classroom survey for the students to understand differing traits which can lead to a discussion of dominant and recessive alleles. Then there is an interactive Punnett Square activity where the students practice crossing homozygous and heterozygous “aliens”. The last resources is one of my top selling products that has the students designing their own aliens to cross and they must come up with their own adaptive traits to help with survival in the environment that they invent. Please see the descriptions and previews of each product.

Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation. Emphasis is on using models such as Punnett squares, diagrams, and simulations to describe the cause and effect relationship of gene transmission from parent(s) to offspring and resulting genetic variation.
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.
