Punnett Square Fun
The topics in the previous video about dominant and recessive traits are continued here as Sal Khan explains incomplete dominance, the randomness of genotypes and phenotypes, and covers how to calculate probabilities using Punnett squares for one or multiple traits.

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.

Dragon Genetics ~ Independent Assortment and Genetic Linkage
Imagine a pair of dragons that produce offspring and determine the percentage of the hatchlings have wings and large antlers. This fantastic activity draws genetics learners in, introduces them to alleles, meiosis, phenotypes, genotypes, and teaches them how to use Punnett squares.

SpongeBob RoundPants? What's the Chance?
Dive down to Bikini Bottom for a fantastic lesson plan 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.

Pea Plant Punnett Square Worksheet
How often do you find a science worksheet that comes with separate teacher's instructions? Here is one of those rare instances. Goals and objectives, materials, and evaluation guidelines precede the actual assignment. Biology leaners complete Punnett squares, identify genotype and phenotype, and calculate ratios.

Bikini Bottom Genetics
Hilarious! Use the characters from SpongeBob Square Pants to practice solving genetics problems! Yellow sponge body color is dominant to blue. Square body shape is dominant to round body shape. Did someone switch Mr. Krab's baby with one that has short eyeballs?

Fruit Fly Ranch Activity
Seventh graders describe how the traits of an organism are passed from generation to generation. They distinguish between asexual and sexul reproduction. Students identify traits through genes and those resulting from interactions with the environment.

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.

Nine pages of material on inheritance make up this handout. It begins with a reading on alleles and how they can result in albinism. A chromosome modeling activity and questions follow. Junior geneticists learn to complete Punnett squares and participate in a coin toss simulation of allele pairing.

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.

Using Blood Tests to Identify Babies and Criminals
A thorough commentary on blood type is presented in this handout. Antigens and antibodies are defined. Punnett squares and a pedigree chart help to clarify. Human biology or genetics learners then apply their knowledge to two situations: two newborn baby girls being possibly switched in the hospital and a crime scene investigation.

Tracing a Genetic Disorder in a Family
For this genetic disorder worksheet, learners understand how genetic diseases are passed down from parents to offspring. Students use Punnett squares to explain how a disorder is inherited. This worksheet has 10 short answer questions.

Genetics Review Sheet
"Genetics Review Sheet" is exactly that: a genetics review sheet. Assign this as homework so that your biology learners can practice solving Punnett squares and brush up on genetics vocabulary. The third page of this resource appears to be a reading guide for a specific textbook, but the fill-in-the-blank style questions should be answerable by any student of genetics.

Genetics: The One Eyed, Easy-Temper-Loser Monster
In this genetics lesson, students read a story and use the characteristics of a fictitious monster to construct a genetic profile. Students then use a Punnett Square to predict the outcomes of their monster family given a particular set of phenotypes.
