Were the babies switched? – The Genetics of Blood Types
Human biology or genetics learners apply their knowledge to a unique situation: two newborn baby girls being possibly switched in the hospital. The engaging activity ends with a Punnett squares assignment in which pupils evaluate whether...

Using Blood-Typing to Determine Causes of Death in Surgery Patients
In this simulation activity, young biologists examine blood types to determine whether the death rate in a hospital was caused because of incorrect identification of patient blood types. You will need obtain and follow the procedures of...

A New War Weapon to Save Lives
Young historians view and analyze photos and documents from WWII that are related to blood transfusions and blood plasma. A demonstration of correct and incorrect blood donors visually shows the importance of knowing blood type. After...

A Case of Multiple Alleles - The Inheritance of ABO Blood Type
Here is a sharp presentation on multiple alleles using the classic blood type example. Viewers revisit codominance and dominance and learn that blood type is actually a combination of both. They use Punnett squares to solve blood type...

Multiple Alleles (ABO Blood Types) and Punnett Squares
Whatever you do in life, always give 100 percent—unless you are donating blood. A video explains how to solve Punnett squares with multiple alleles, in this case blood types. It includes what happens if the wrong type is added, which...

Why Do Blood Types Matter?
Here is a fascinating video that explores the genetic implications of our blood types as humans, how we can determine an individual's blood type based on cell alleles, the RH factor, and how blood types can mean life or death for those...
