Every Biology student should understand how to read, analyze, and construct a pedigree chart. What better way to help them grasp this task then to have them work on their own family. In addition to pedigrees, students should understand how genetic disorders are passed through families. This project from Lab207 addresses both of those needs. Through this engaging project students will learn about a disease and how to apply the principles of the pedigree chart.
-Students will construct a pedigree chart of their family.
-Students will determine the genotype of each member in their family with regard to a specific disease.
-Students will create a prezi to discuss a certain disease.
