The seeds have been planted for the genetics lab called The Effect of Environment on Gene Expression. The students had a great time planting the seeds, and are having fun watching for the first signs of germination. Hopefully, in a week or so, the plants will be big enough to classify them as green or albino.
Today, we are starting the monohybrid cross. Genetics is one of my very favorite topics to teach to students. It is so easy to keep their attention. Over the next two days, I will be using several handouts that I have developed on the monohybrid or one factor cross.
Check this one out since it is FREE!!! Monohybrid Mice!
And I will also be having my students complete these:
