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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Peas In A Pod: Mendelian Genetics
Students complete a series of lessons where they learn about the basics of genetics, fill out Punnett Squares correctly, and solve reality based problems. In this genetics lesson plan, students have worksheets that are provided.

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.

The Genetic Diagnosis of Cancer: The Questions Continue to Multiply
Students review the basic concepts of genetics, such as Mendelian inheritance and pedigree construction and analysis. They use an activity that uses recent findings in cancer genetics to present. Students use a pedigree in a "real life" situation, much like a genetic counselor.

Hardy-Weinberg Made Easy: A Seventh Way
The purpose of this lesson plan is to slowly introduce the Hardy-Weinberg Law and population genetics to your students after you have completed Mendelian genetics. Using this format, you ease the students into the concept by relying on the knowledge they already have.

Mendelian Inheritance of Human Traits
In this Mendelian inheritance worksheet, students will use a pedigree to complete 4 short answer questions about recessive and dominant traits. Then students will create a Punnett square. Finally, students will match 5 genetic disorders to their correct descriptions.
