This comprehensive 6-page activity allows students to learn the basics of genotypes and phenotypes by examining simple dominant and recessive human traits.

Traits in this lab include tongue rolling, widow's peak, mid-digital hair, the ability to taste PTC, and more! 11 traits in all!

Students record their genotypes for each trait and then compile class data. Comprehension questions are included to reinforce the concepts.

Students will love the easy explanations and pictures for each trait!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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.
