Handy Family Tree

This Handy Family Tree activity & project also includes:

Oh my goodness, such a cute activity! Little geneticists use their handprints to make a handy family tree. They trace and cut out their handprints and then glue them together to make a tree-type shape. They get totally crazy with the traits as the label each finger with the traits they have inherited and who they inherited those traits from. The idea is simple, but could really lead to some great discussion about genetic inheritance, recessive, and dominant traits. Note: The resource is printable in both Spanish and English!
