AWESOME Activity! Helped keep students focused on a busy Friday before Halloween AND a three day weekend. HIGHLY recommend!
This was the perfect seasonally-themed activity for my biology class right now. I used it as a review before their unit assessment.


Punnett Squares - Fall Halloween Jack o' All Traits for Genetics & Heredity.

Boo! Don't be scared to try out our Halloween Punnett Square Practice! The Lanterns in the local patch have been scaring up some new baby Lanterns. Students will really enjoy these fun Punnett Square practice problems that help them reinforce homozygous, heterozygous, dominant and recessive traits.

• DIGITAL GOOGLE CLASSROOM links to all items listed above which can be easily converted to Microsoft School with directions provided or altered to fit your school’s personal learning management system

What students will do:

* Use the chart of traits to complete some fun Punnett Square problems and help the Lanterns determine what their newest little pumpkins will look like.

* Flip coins to make their own Jack O'Lanterns that they can display around your classroom!
