This is a custom worksheet packet I made for my 7th grade life science students. The Genetics and Heredity unit has lots of new terms and vocabulary and I wanted to create something for my students where they could practice vocabulary like traits, genotype, phenotype, dominant trait, recessive trait, homozygous and heterozygous before we start using Punnett Squares. Depending on the level of your students you can do some of this as a whole class or have students work in pairs to complete the worksheets, or individually.
In my unit I start with a snap pea seed germination project, do an online snap pea lab where students get to mimic some of Mendel's experiments and then do this traits practice worksheet packet. After this, I will introduce Punnett Squares.
