Product Description
This is a full performance task for biology students studying genetics in grades 9, 10, 11 and 12. This activity asks students to assume the roll of babysitters. It is a fun and engaging way to learn about genetics!

The students will be asked to "babysit" three babies and return them to their correct set of parents at the end of the day. However, it seems as though the students have forgotten which baby belongs to which set of parents!

Students will be asked to use their knowledge of genetics and heredity to correctly match the correct baby to the correct set of parents. Students will define which traits are discrete or continuous, dominant or recessive and heritable or non-heritable for each baby and set of parents. Students will receive information sheets about each baby and set of parents to guide them in solving the mystery!
