In class today, students completed an activity where they tried to determine their own genetic code. Of course this is impossible; the real human genome is about 6 billion base pairs long. So our activity was a mixture of both fact and fiction.
Students went through each of the 23 pairs of human chromosomes and filled in on gene that can be found on each. For example, a gene for curly hair can be found on Chromosome 1, while there is a gene associated with “thrill seeking” located on Chromosome 11. Students went through the packet, analyzing their traits and filling in their code, and finished off with a self-portrait.
