Grades 8–12. For a class of 32 students. If you need a quick monohybrid genetics lab, this is it. Activities can be completed in as little as 3 days. By germinating the seed disks, students working in groups of 4 study the inheritance of purple color through 3 generations of plants.

Students also study a monohybrid cross that begins with a homozygous purple stem plant and a homozygous non-purple stem plant. In the 1st activity students prepare seed disks for germination in petri dishes. In the 2nd activity they observe the seedlings and collect and analyze data.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Visual My students thoroughly enjoyed this activity. The stem colors are a great visual example of monohybrid genetics. All my 8th grade students were able to follow the instructions and answer the analysis questions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and Easy Genetics Lab I ordered this for my high school biology class. It was easy to set up - almost foolproof, and the plants were easy to take care of over the next few days. They grew quickly and the students were able to see visually what Mendel did and what he saw. It reinforced all of the concepts that we talked about in class and was fun and interactive as well. The class loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works well This product works very easily. Students set up plant growth and within days they can begin collecting data. I can have each class plant a set or I can plant a set and have multiple classes analyze results, depending on my budget for the year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product was easy to use and fit my fast-paced Biology curriculum. I used this product to reinforce the concept of Mendelian monohybrid genetics. I have much material to cover in the Biology class and this was an easy, quick and effective lab for my students. The group I have this year is the gifted group and we were able to take the results and add some application such as environmental factors that affect gene expression (light intensity for example) and the fact that we had a small sample size. Great product and lab!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for homeschool co-op These seeds start growing within hours of set up! We had results in just a few days. This was a very nice lab to show the recessive traits disappearing in the first generation but reappearing in the 2nd generation without having to wait for successive generations to mature and reproduce. All the kids seemed to enjoy it and we'l probably do some more fast plant labs when we get to plant anatomy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genetics Lab..Finally This lab is a quick and easy way to show inheritance of a basic trait (stem color) and it only takes 3 days. I also held back the P2 and F2 generations and had students make predictions about the genotypes/phenotypes for each. Once they had their hypotheses, I gave them their P2 and F2 plates and they were able to revise. Great inquiry extension. Finally a simple intro genetics LAB to break up the monotony of punnett squares! Suggestions: Check the plates before placing them in the water dishes to be sure the students set them up correctly. Also, to disperse the tiny seeds, pre-count each generation using forceps and place them on a piece of tape. Otherwise the students drop them and the seeds will go everywhere!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Application of concepts in a easy to use format. The lab was so easy and fast for my students. It really showed the dominant/recessive traits in the F1 and F2 generations.
