The Face Lab - An Introduction to Genetics

Simulate the passing of genetic traits with this worksheet. Working with a partner, pupils flip a coin to determine characteristics: gender, face shape, chin features, hair patterns and color, eye spacing, and more. A data chart is provided for them to keep track of results. Finally, learners draw the offspring and answer critical-thinking questions about the experience and how it relates to genetic inheritance. Though some of the fonts are fuzzy, this is an amusing activity that is sure to reinforce genetics concepts.
