Study of Multiple Alleles in genetics. Use mini-marshmallows to determine the offspring of 3 generations using 10 genes. This lab studies the genetic and environmental causes of human height. It is based on current studies by the BROAD institute and then shortened and put into a fun lab for students in middle school or high school.
This lab consists of background information concerning height, instructions for students and a hand out to record data. Students will use "talk moves" to sum up the outcomes of their lab to the class.
