How Mendel's Pea Plants Helped Us Understand Genetics
A brief animation introduces heredity to your beginning biologists. They will meet Gregor Mendel's green and yellow peas, dominant and recessive traits, homozygous and heterozygous alleles, and Punnett squares. In this cartoon animation, the peas all have arms, legs, and facial features.

Although these slides seem full of text, the information is bulleted and clear. There is a list of vocabulary and then two slides to define examples of Mendelian inheritance and rules of probability. The remaining five slides look at specific trends in inheritance and phenotype occurrence, with realistic examples to help your students' understanding.

Mendel Pea Plant Worksheet
"Mendel's Pea Plants" begins with reading and comprehension questions about Gregor Mendel's experimentation with pea plants. Step-by-step instruction is given on how to determine possible genotypes and phenotypes of offspring using Punnett squares.

Mendelian Genetics and Inheritance
Introduce your biologists to Gregor Mendel, the man responsible for Mendelian genetics. The resource explains the experiment that made him famous and sparked interest in genetics everywhere. Also take a closer look at Huntington's disease and how it is passed through generations.

The Clark Family Story: Tracing the Cause of Hemophilia
Ms. Strohfeldt did not omit anything when she designed this comprehensive lesson plan on DNA mutation and sex-linked traits. Begin with a pretest as an anticipatory set. Read a case history of the Clark family and the occurrence of hemophilia in the family.

A girl without freckles is like a night without stars! On this worksheet, junior geneticists determine how many of the offspring of a freckle-faced father and a freckelless mother. They also write out answers to questions about Mendel's experiments, incomplete dominance, and codominance.

Beyond Mendel's Laws of Inheritance
This PowerPoint jumps right into the details of unusual traits and how they are coded. The epistasis patterns in Labradors are used as a main example, and many instances of polygenic inheritance malfunctions are explained. All of this should grab your students' attention!

AP: Chapter 14: Mendel and the Gene Idea
A survey of Mendelian genetics is presented through this handout. Biology prodigies answer questions about the Law of Segregation, phenotypic ratios, and dominance. They define genetics vocabulary terms and describe various genetic disorders.

Using the Internet to Do Punnett Squares
What a fun way to explore Mendelian Genetics! Using a computer connected to the Internet, beginning biologists construct and use Punnett squares of monohybrid crosses to explain how genetic traits are passed to offspring. Other websites used in the lesson include a summary, a tutorial, and the interactive opportunity.

Genetics and Human Inheritance
Thirteen short-answer questions query young geneticists on this worksheet. Learners define important genetics vocabulary words and explain related concepts. Supplement this worksheet with some Punnett square exercises or completion of a pedigree chart.

Genetics fledglings define genotype and phenotype and then describe Mendel's laws of heredity and segregation. This single-page activity is a brief introduction to genetics concepts. You could follow it by teaching how to use Punnett squares to solve genetics cross problems.

The Making of the Fittest: Natural Selection in Humans
Sickle cell disease only occurs when both parents contribute the trait, and mostly in those of African descent. Where did it come from? How did it evolve? Tony Allison, a molecular biologist, noticed a connection between sickle cell and immunity against malaria when he was working in East Africa in the 1950s.

Beyond Mendel's Laws of Inheritance
Mendels laws of Genetics are extended here with examples of traits that are completely controlled by just one gene. Malfunctions such as albinism and baldness can therefore be tracked and will demonstrate inheritance patterns to your class.

Genetics and the Work of Mendel
Excellent examples and clear diagrams in this PowerPoint will help you explain the genetics of alleles and the combinations of hybrid crosses. A high school class would appreciate having this student copy of the PowerPoint as the images are a great recap of all concepts pertaining to this topic.
