Creature Creations

Seventh graders examine how to determine the difference between dominant and recessive traits. They create a creature with at least three traits which the students identify as dominant or recessive. They demonstrate the use of a Punnett square. Finally, they make a family portrait for their creature which shows the parents and offspring with the traits identified.

I discovered Lesson Planet by accident, and am so glad I did. There would be times when I feel the materials provided to me are inadequate, and this site gave me exactly what I was looking for. I really love it when I give a task, and my students completely take over! I observe how determined they are to get the job done, and they feel more confident when the work is a success!
