This download contains a story and a worksheet to help students practice making pedigrees. The story traces the recessive trait for bright red nose, made famous by Rudolph the Flying Reindeer through four generations. In order to use this activity students must be familiar with the symbols for a pedigree, and the vocabulary words dominant, recessive, heterozygous, homozygous, and carrier.
