Why Lesson Planet?
Junior geneticists tally eye color and height in their lab groups. They examine certain traits in soybean and corn seedlings. For each activity, they gather data and learn about continuous and discontinuous genetic variation. In another activity, pupils analyze pedigree charts. High schoolers really enjoy comparing their traits to others, so these activities will prove to be a hit with them. Because the lesson plans are so well written, they will be a hit with teachers as well!
