* Survey their classmates to see just how unique or alike they are, and relate those results to the world as a whole.
* Flip coins to see what kind of traits their offspring will receive in a Game of Chance.
* Make their baby using the traits they inherited.

Included in this lesson are 15 PowerPoint slides and 7 pages of student handouts and answer keys.
