Students will analyze and create pedigree charts by completing 3 differentiated practice worksheets and participating in a Pedigree Whiteboard Review. This product promotes critical thinking to help students gain a deeper understanding of dominant/recessive inheritance patterns.
This Product Includes:
♥ Pedigree Practice Packet (4 p. PDF)
♥ Modified Version of Pedigree Practice Packet
♥ Answer Keys
♥ Pedigree Whiteboard Review PowerPoint (editable)
★Spotlight on Strategies
Use the editable PowerPoint presentation to review key pedigree concepts after initial teaching, review before a test, or as a formative assessment. Students will write their answers to the questions on individual whiteboards and hold them up for you to view. After counting down, reveal the answer on the PowerPoint slide. You can "gameify" this by having students track points on their whiteboard, or by competing as teams.
