This is a rubric outlining project requirements for students to analyze their own genetic family history of a specific trait and display those results in a family pedigree chart. It includes specific requires for two parts of the project: a poster (displaying pedigree) and a writing component to accompany their project.
This is a great application activity that gets students engaged because they are using their own family genetics!
This activity is set up to be an out-of-class assignment, but can be modified for in class if you want.
This rubric is editable so you can made adjustments based on your own project specifications.
This project is appropriate primarily for high school, but can be adapted to middle school.
