Introduce dominant and recessive alleles, Punnett squares, and the work of Gregor Mendel. Mendel's pea shape and color alleles are used as the example traits.
In the activity students randomly select inherited alleles for pea shape and color - these data are used to learn about parent alleles, dominant and recessive traits, and using Punnett squares to predict probability of inheritance.
- Activity (in school or at home) – randomly select dominant and recessive alleles for pea shape and pea color (Mendel’s peas)
- Data Analysis – compare predicted probabilities of allele selection to your random selection
- Use Punnett Square to Predict Allele Inheritance
- Punnett Square Check for Understanding
