PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun unit to help your students understand basic genetics and how traits are passed from one generation to the next. The activities can be used as a standalone unit using the characters pictured, or if you prefer you may add your own characters. In the first activity, students will determine the genotypes and phenotypes for six different traits expressed in the genetics of the characters. The second activity includes working Punnett Square problems with the traits. The students will complete problems with several types of inheritance, including dominant/recessive traits, codominance, multiple alleles, incomplete dominance and sex-linked traits. The students will also work with pedigrees to determine genotypes. In the third activity, students will choose a character and walk through the steps of meiosis and create gametes. They will then use two gametes from their character and two gametes from another character of the opposite sex, to create two offspring. The unit culminates when the students draw their families using the genotypes of each character (mom, dad, offspring 1 and offspring 2). Each activity comes with a list of vocabulary terms, a quiz, and a Quizlet link (an online site where students can use flash cards and play games while learning the terms). This activity can be found at Teachers Pay Teachers at the World of Science store. All files are in Microsoft Office format and as PDFs.
