Genetics Activity: Dragon Genotypes and Phenotypes
activity for middle school. This activity provides hands-on review of genetics to include genotype, phenotype, alleles, homozygous, heterozygous, and Punnett squares. Students will experience the “birth” of their very own dragon from plastic Easter eggs and identify its characteristics based upon alleles. They can then color their dragon based upon its genotypes and phenotypes. I have also included instructions on how this could be used without the Easter eggs! Students will also have the opportunity to work with a partner and create their own offspring.
Included in this packet:
✸ Two pages of teacher instructions on how to best use this activity
✸ Baby Dragon genotype/phenotype worksheet
✸ Vocabulary review worksheet
✸ Male and female dragon coloring pages for students to display their dragon
✸ Completed genotype/phenotype worksheet and coloring page for reference
✸ Three pages of Dragon offspring activity – Punnett squares based on parents
✸ Genetics mini-quiz w/key
✸ Baby Dragon alleles for printing if using with plaster Easter eggs.
This would be great as a review activity to reinforce key vocabulary and concepts.
