Patterns of Heredity
Young scholars describe the differences between incomplete dominance and codominant alleles, and between multiple alleles and polygenic inheritance. They describe how internal and external environments affect gene expression. They then interpret testcrosses and pedigrees charts.

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!

Looking Closely at a Tree: Introduction to Phenotype
Upon dissecting a young tree branch and inspecting the cambium layer, apical buds, and other physical features, green thumbs also grasp the meanings of the genetic terms genotype and phenotype. Not only are genetics and plant physiology covered in this tremendous resource, it also adheres to the Common Core requirements for literacy in science.

Karyotypes and Inheritance of Chromosomes
Students explore the mode of inheritance of chromosomes. Given a scenario, students use the Human Genome sheet to determine inherited chromosomes. They illustrate the difference between genotype and phenotype. Students develop a model using chromosomes.

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.
