Product Description

Students will use "family histories" to create pedigrees in four different case studies of inherited conditions. From the pedigrees students will be able to determine the pattern of inheritance for the condition. Using Punnett squares, students will then "counsel" the fictional couple in each case study on the likelihood of inheritance.

Students who love puzzles and real-world applications will love this activity! This activity includes introductory notes on creating pedigrees as well as sample student work to use as a key.
