Reebops a Model "Organism" for Teaching Genetics Concepts

Reebops are cute, marshmallow-based creatures that can be used to teach inheritance. Beginning biologists draw strips of paper that represent chromosomes from two envelopes, one for the father, and one for the mother. Each parent contributes an allelle to help determine the traits for the baby reebop. Traits include number of antennae, curly or straight tails, nose color, and more! To conclude the activity, learners construct a reebop model with the characteristics drawn. Adorable!
