This engaging unit allows students to investigate their own traits and develop a conceptual understanding about heredity. Hands on activities, games, and a post-test are included. Activities in this unit provide at least 4 days of learning.
Prior to the unit, students collect data from parents on easily observable traits. They then use this data to create models and compare their parents traits to theirs. On day 2 they compile class data and analyze the results. On the 3rd day, vocabulary is introduced and connected to the activity. Punnett Squares are introduced and students are given the opportunity to practice. Finally students play "Heredity Bingo" on Day 4 to review the vocabulary and concepts. An optional post test with rubric is included.
This unit is aligned to NGSS standards and can be used for a large range of grades. (Grades 3-7)
