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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Happy Face Spider Propagation
Students research genetic adaptations. For this chromosome lesson, students investigate dominant and recessive genes using spiders indigenous to Hawaii. Students create Punnett squares to determine the probability of passing specific genetic traits to its offspring.

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?

Dominant or Recessive
Students simulate a Punnett square. For this dominant or recessive lesson, students explore possible outcomes of given situations. They compare and contrast homozygous dominant and homozygous recessive genes. Students use graphing calculators to collect information and display it.

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.

Teacher Preparation Notes on Genetics
Students explore genetics through various hands-on activities. In this biology lesson, students predict the probability of offspring genotypes and phenotypes using the Punnett Square. They explain the causes of genetic abnormalities.
