Product Description
Introducing and reviewing genetics in your classroom? This activity pack is perfect for upper elementary and middle school! This Create-A-Monster Lab is engaging and fun while focusing on genetics and heredity in the classroom.

Each student plays "Rock, Paper, Scissors" to determine which genes they inherit from their parents then their monster displays the dominant or recessive traits accordingly. My students thoroughly enjoyed this short lab to reinforce the vocabulary and skills covered earlier in the chapter.

The pack includes:
*posters for dominant and recessive trait
*recording sheet for traits
*2 body types for your monster
*lab sheet to extend thinking
*Punnett square practice of traits from your monster
+ examples and samples of work to see what completed papers and directions should look like.

If you are covering genetics, heredity, genes, dominant and recessive traits this year then this activity is a MUST! It is great for any time of the year and creatively engages students in the learning process!
