Congratulations! You are the proud parent of a demigod. Your genes have been combined with a god or goddess to create a demigod (half-god, half-mortal). Use your knowledge of the gods, goddesses and genetics to predict the various traits that your demigod will inherit from you and the god/goddess parent. Students will use the characters from Percy Jackson & The Olympians by Rick Riordan to enhance their study of Genetics. By looking at the phenotypes and genotypes of the gods, goddesses and themselves, students will create Punnett Squares to and create genetically accurate demigods. Because all teachers became responsible for reading and literacy with the implementation of the Common Core Curriculum standards, this activity will enable teachers to help students learn genetics through literature in a fun and engaging way. This activity would complement a Biology or Life Science classroom well. This lesson is cross-curricular with bonus activities and integrates the English, Social Studies and Art classrooms as well. An answer key is included.
