This packet is great for explaining the basics of creating and interpreting genetic pedigrees in high school biology. There are several practice pedigree questions and it covers pedigrees for traits that have simple autosomal dominance and recessive relationships.
Honors or Advanced students may even be able to complete this independently as a sub plan in a 45-60 minute period! Mine can! With lower level classes, a teacher will need to lead them through the steps.
The first 5 pages are full of explanations, step-by-step directions, and practice questions.
I left the 6th page intentionally blank to allow room for student work, notes, or Punnett squares scratch work.
Pages 7-8 have a homework that would be great to assess student learning after the class.
Page 8 has a question asking for a thoughtful written sample.
Pages 9-14 have a full answer key!
