-A middle school student from Colorado October 30,2014 There are definitely codominant traits in people. But having two different colored eyes is not one of them. This heterochromia happens for different reasons (click here to learn more). You a
Genetics ~ Create a Baby Lab
Have your students "Create a Baby" based on specific dominant or recessive traits! The Create A Baby lab can be used during any unit on genetics, all that is needed are some pennies and colored pencils. Students will "create" or draw a baby based on traits acquired through chance. This lab is very...

Genetics Problems and Activities for Biology Interactive Notebooks, Warm Ups, and Bell Ringers
Genetics is the name, and warm ups, bell ringers and interactive notebook pages is the game. This idea is on fire in my standard biology classes! I admit that my students were dubious (at best) at first, but now all are on board, and I am loving the daily routine. I would call what I am doing a "warm up notebook." The short review that each page provides for my students each day is proving to be invaluable. But there are so many other uses for these activity pages. They make fantastic…
Diffusion Demonstration - Teach With Fergy
This activity can either be done as a student inquiry or teacher demonstration. In either case, a preliminary and follow-up discussion can be used to stimulate thinking and reinforce concepts taught in the unit. Materials needed: • 2 tea bags • 2 transparent mugs or glasses • cold water – ice cold water if possible […]

Cellular Respiration Lab: The Use of Glucose in Cellular Respiration
Cellular Respiration Lab: The Use of Glucose in Cellular Respiration. This inquiry-based lab allows students to discover how yeasts use organic molecules as a source of energy and give off carbon dioxide as a waste product. Make your biology class more appealing and exciting by incorporating a var...
Biochemistry Activity Bundle with Four Macromolecules for High School Biology
Use beads, pipe cleaners, and paper clips to model all four types of molecules studied in a traditional high school biology biochemistry unit. Students will model monomers, polymers, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA). This is a tough unit to teach. Chemical structur...
Punnett Square Practice -10 pea plant examples + enrichment & challenge activity
Have students practice Punnett squares using the classic Gregor Mendel pea plant examples! 10 examples using traits from Mendel's plant research are given, then early finishers have the opportunity to create their own examples for other students to complete. Lastly, a challenge project is included!
5 Best Printable Punnett Square Worksheets
Science lessons in school usually have a Punnett square topic in the learning syllabus. Punnet square is known as a way to find out the results of crossing based on the developing genotype.
