Students will love using their knowledge of punnett squares and heredity to make a snowman family and an edible gingerbread man. These two activities are perfect as a review before and after the winter break. In the first activity students have to use the traits of Mr. and Mrs. Snowman to create their snowman family using their knowledge of punnett squares, genotypes, and phenotypes. In the second activity students use coins to determine the traits of their gingerbread man and then they use those traits to create their own edible gingerbread man. Now with a digital version to help with distance learning
