A 4-page worksheet designed to help middle school and lower high school students review the topics of genetics, alleles, dominance and recessiveness, purebreds and hybrids, Punnett squares and monohybrid crosses.
This is the second worksheet in the Squirrel Genetics series of products.
This product features 8 questions that center around the genetics of squirrels living in a forest. Students are asked to solve monohybrid cross genetics problems by using Punnett squares and analyzing the results.
I use this as a second worksheet that follows my PowerPoint presentation product entitled Genetics and Heredity, which I use to introduce the topic to students. After showing the relevant PPT slides to my class and viewing a brief video clip, I hand out this activity for students to work on for the remainder of the lesson and for homework.
This product is part of a larger suite of Squirrel Genetics products. Links to each of these products are found below.
