Genetics Easter Egg Lab 1

Genetics Easter Egg Lab 2Yesterday we worked with Easter egg genetics to understand Punnett Squares, genotypes and phenotypes. Each egg had either homozygous or heterozygous traits, and then according to the phenotype, students had to figure out the genotypes that were inside the egg. When they opened the plastic egg, they were able to see if their Punnett Squares had the correct information or not. Genotypes were represented by small, colored beads inside the egg. Students learned a lot and did a wonderful job on this lab. We are diving further into DNA, blood typing, and genetic disorders in the days to come!
