This workbook provides a simple introduction to genetics topics of heredity and DNA. Children answer question about their appearance such as hair and eye color, tongue rolling ability, freckles, etc. After they tally up their answers, they will discover if they have mostly dominant or recessive genes.
This can be a fun diversity and math activity for the whole class too - create a bar graph showing how many students have each trait. Another fun extension is to have students compare their answers to their siblings and parents at home, then they can really connect the fact that genes are passed down from their parents and that's why family members look alike!
The workbook is simple enough for elementary students, but also fun for middle and high schoolers.
