Genetics and Heredity Stations Activity
What educators are saying
These stations give students a fun way to practice genetics and heredity concepts. The stations include questions about dominant and recessive alleles, genotypes, phenotypes, codominance, purebreds, hybrids, homozygous, heterozygous, monohybrid crosses, inherited and learned traits, and Gregor Mendel.
Whenever students get up and move around the room they are more motivated, work harder, and have a greater focus on the material (especially during long block classes). Middle school students love stations and, once implemented in classrooms, often request them. Stations are a great alternative to worksheets while still accomplishing student practice with content. In addition, you save time and paper by not having to make hundreds of copies of a worksheet. Stations allow teachers to provide extra assistance to ELL and SPED students. Thorough directions for use are provided in the document.
This resource contains the following materials:
-Teacher Information Sheet with directions for implementation
-24 Stations to post around the room
-Blank Station cards so you can write additional questions if needed
-Individual Stations worksheet (for students who prefer to work at their desks or students who cannot handle moving around the room)
-Completed Answer Sheet with answer explanations
