Students learn genetics vocabulary (traits, hereditary, dominant, recessive) and Punnett Squares with this NO PREP digital resource. Can easily be used for distance learning or in class. Information on Google Slides is interactive with drag and drop activities. Depending on the level of your students, this resource can be used as a stand-alone lesson to teach the basics of Genetics, or a comprehensive reinforcement after an introduction to the concepts. 

Vocabulary explained:

  • Trait
  • Allele
  • Phenotype
  • Genotype
  • Homozygous Dominant
  • Homozygous Recessive
  • Heterozygous
  • Punnett Square

Your students will learn these concepts and then be challenged to use what they learned through interactive activities

  • Sort Genotypes as Heterozygous, Homozygous Dominant or Homozygous Recessive
  • Genotype vs Phenotype examples and definitions
  • Which Genotype would produce which Phenotype?
  • Which Phenotype would come from a given Genotype?

After learning how to work a Punnett Square, they will complete six using drag and drop alleles, along with percent probability questions for each genotype and phenotype. 

This resource includes:

  • Google Slides set: 18 interactive Google Slides that teach students the basics of Punnett squares and genetics vocabulary
  • Full KEY to the Google Slides activity The Key can be used for grading by the teacher, or given to students to self-check their work. 
  • Basic Genetics Guided Notes sheet. One more way students will interact with the content. The notes can be printed or completed digitally in Google Docs. These notes are NOT simply copy-from-the-slide or fill-in-the-blank. They will challenge your students to take what they have learned and apply it. Notes can be completed while going through the Google Slide set, or given to students the following day as a review and reinforcement.

Apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population. Emphasis is on the use of mathematics to describe the probability of traits as it relates to genetic and environmental factors in the expression of traits. Assessment does not include Hardy-Weinberg calculations.
