Description:

This lab provides a list of hypothetical genotypes for a number of human phenotypes. Students fill a table with their own genotypes and phenotypes, then cross with a partner, flip coins, and determine the baby's genotype and phenotype. Finally, they draw a picture. If this is a little too personal, you can have students create the mother/father, rather than using their own features. This resource is part of the Developing Biology course which contains units on Microscopes; Biochemistry; Cells; Cellular Transport; DNA; Photosynthesis and Respiration; Mitosis and Meiosis; Genetics; and Evolution.
