Grades 8–12. For a class of 32 students. How are traits passed from one generation to the next? In this 60-day investigation, students observe 3 generations of plants as they attempt to unravel the mystery of paternity. As the activity progresses, students develop explanations, based on their own observations, for the inheritance of either 1 or 2 Mendelian genes.

Grades 8–12. For a class of 32 students. How are traits passed from one generation to the next? In this 60-day investigation, students observe 3 generations of plants as they attempt to unravel the mystery of paternity.

Use the Monohybrid Kit (1 gene; item #158963) for beginning genetics; use the Dihybrid Kit (2 genes; item #158964) for more advanced students. Kits include everything needed, except water and a light source. We recommend the Plant Light House® with CFL (item #159004) as a light source. Kit Refills (items #158756 and #158757) replenish all consumable materials.

 
 
 
 
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost like Mendel I used this in a college level genetics course. Either seeds were mixed up or some of the phenotypes were difficult to distinguish. Questions are good for lower level students but more depth required to make it college level. I may or may not use it again depending upon student feedback.
