This worksheet is to help guide students through the DNA from the beginning simulation found here: www.dnaftb.org
The simulation explains classical genetics using Mendel's pea plant experiments, teaching students these fundamentals of genetics:
1. Children resemble their parents
2. Genes come in pairs
3. Genes don't blend
4. Some genes are dominant
There are 41 questions and directions to keep students on task. An answer key is also included! This activity aligns with NGSS MS-LS3-2: Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation.
