This lesson is a ready to go Virtual Inquiry Lab. Become a facilitator in this activity where students will breed mice to learn about Simple, Co-dominant, and Incomplete patterns of inheritance. Students will strategically breed the mice, collect data, and draw conclusions to determine dominant and recessive alleles. This resource is a great way to apply basic genetic principles in a guided inquiry format. Includes Higher Order Thinking analysis questions based on the data collected.
Simple Mendelian Inheritance
This simulation will work with devices that can run flash player. Coding and illustrations are 100% done by the seller. This product includes a worksheet and access to the virtual lab.
Virtual labs allow for the exploration of genetic concepts without the hassle that comes with systematically breeding organisms in a lab. Virtual Labs have no set up or clean up. It allows the teacher to be a facilitator of learning in a student centered classroom. It also provides the opportunity for students to redo the experiment at home in the case of sickness or absence.
