Provide your students with a hands-on review of basic heredity & genetics with this engaging MONSTER MATES PUNNETT SQUARES AND HEREDITY LAB.
This fun activity will provide practice over the following topics: genotype, phenotype, alleles, homozygous, heterozygous, Punnett squares, and heredity.
This activity begins with the creation of each individual student’s monster. Students will flip a coin to determine the genotype and phenotype of their monster. Then, they will build their monster accordingly. (Side note: be ready for some laughs as these creations get pretty wacky!)
In the second part of this activity, students will partner and combine alleles to deepen their understanding of how traits are passed from parent to offspring. They will create “baby monsters” and build them together to see which traits will be passed along.
Your students are going to LOVE this lab!
