Mendel's Laws of Heredity
Easy-to-read notes about Mendel's Laws of Heredity make up this collection of slides. In bullet-point style, viewers are exposed to Mendel's pea plant experimentation and the rules he developed that govern genetics. There are no graphics or photos, but the font is in a variety of colors, making the presentation more appealing.

Dragon Genetics ~ Understanding Inheritance
Juvenile geneticists will jive with this imaginative investigation of inheritance in dragons. Six pages begin with a detailed introduction to meiosis and homologous chromosome pairs. Instructions guide learners through a simulation in which they draw craft sticks marked with autosomes in order to decode the genes inherited by the baby dragon.

Pea Plants Dihybrid Crosses
Four pea plant crosses are given for learners to place into Punnett squares. Once they sort the genotypes of the parent plants, they list the possible genotypes for offspring and determine the phenotype ratios. Using Punnett squares is a fundamental genetics skill and this assignment contains concrete examples for your young biologists to work through.

How Does Chance Influence Inheritance?
Students complete a lab based on how chance affects which genes appear in gametes as in Mendel's Law of Segregation. They review the theories, vocabulary words, and historical background of Gregor Mendel's work with pea plants. They complete lab worksheets and submit for grading.

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.

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.

SpongeBob RoundPants? What's the Chance?
Dive down to Bikini Bottom for a fantastic lesson on heredity! High school scientists make phenotype predictions for various characters based on given dominant and recessive traits. Use the PowerPoint here to review this concept before splitting learners into small groups.

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.

Raven Chapter 13 Guided Notes: Patterns of Inheritance
In this short space, it would be impossible to describe the breadth of this seven-page genetics activity. Geared toward AP or college biology learners, they explore not only the basic vocabulary and concepts, but also the Law of Segregation, pleiotropy, epistasis, and the Chromosomal Theory of Inheritance.

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.

Hardy Har Har: Investigating the Hardy-Weinberg Principle
Well, shiver me timbers! Biology pupils practice using the Hardy-Weinberg principle for computing change in gene frequency within a fictional population of pirates. The genetic trait being analyzed is the presence of sea legs, legs that prevent them from falling over when the ship is tossing.
