  • Aligned with Big Idea 3 and Essential Knowledge 3.A.2, 3.A.3, and 3.C.2
  • Emphasizes Science Practices 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7

Students uncover and experience the mechanism of Mendelian genetics hands-on with Wisconsin Fast Plants®. Using Fast Plants® seedlings, students germinate F1 and F2 generations of a population to learn about the inheritance of traits, including stem color and length. After drawing conclusions about inheritance in the population, students are tasked with using inquiry to determine the genotype of an unknown sample of Fast Plants® seed. This kit brings Mendelian genetics into your classroom and features quick results and robust data analysis, including chi-square and Hardy-Weinberg.

The kit includes enough materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4. The digital teacher's manual is a 12-month eBook license to the Exploring Mendelian Genetics Kit teacher's manual. You can also access the digital student guide for this kit for free on Carolina Science Online®.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Make write ups easy Using these labs allows me to completely do "Inquiry Learning." I present the back ground information , runoff the inquiry lab, and let my students go at it. Students really get more out of the variety in the lab and the presentations from each group. Reporting data is a great STEM practice.
