PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this science activity students are given a list of 16 different human traits with picture and word explanations of the dominant versus recessive genes.

Students then use this information to determine if they are dominant or recessive for the particular traits. Next tally the dominants and recessives in class to tie in a lesson on percents. Students can find out the percentages of dominant and recessive traits in class.

Then students take home the information to find out the dominant and recessive traits of their family members.

Finally, students use the information that they found out about themselves to design a pair of "jeans" that represent them.

This activity ties in nicely when teaching Punnett squares, so that the students can understand why they may have a dominant trait when the parents seem to have recessive or vice versa.

Have a blast!

NOTE: This product is also available in a bundle pack titled, Science Projects throughout the year. Eight activities/projects are included in the bundle pack.
