Need a ready-to-go, creative, hands-on project to review post-Mendelian patterns of genetic inheritance? Well, you found it! All you need to have on hand are as many pennies (or other coins) as you have students and markers, colored pencils or crayons. This project includes the genetic profiles for 22 males and 22 females, each with pre-determined genotypes to assure genetic variability within your class. Students begin by using the ready-to-go filled-in genotype/phenotype chart for their 'parents.' After determining these traits and 'creating' the parents, they use their coin to determine which allele from each parent is passed on to the offspring. After crossing parents and determining the child's genotypes and phenotypes, students answer follow-up questions based on the class results. Project includes sex chromosomes, sex-linked genes (color blindness), multiple alleles (blood type), polygenic inheritance (eye and hair color), co-dominance (blood type), incomplete dominance (hair texture) and recessive genetic disorders (cystic fibrosis). I really think you will enjoy this product! Please see the preview!
Also included, a handout on blood type.
