This activity is a great way to introduce or reinforce genes and alleles. It helps students better understand what genes and alleles are and how they are different and similar. Students will be given cards that they must match up with other gene and allele cards.
An extension activity is included! This can be 1-3 days, depending on how far you want to go with it. The hands-on format helps students make sense of genes and alleles in an easy and fun manner. Students will become masters of genes by the end of this activity!
