Inquiries in Science®: Comprehending Genetic Inheritance Kit

$207.20
(in stock)

Description

In this guided-inquiry activity, introduce students to genetic inheritance using Wisconsin Fast Plants®. Students first plant and score Wisconsin Fast Plants® to examine phenotypes of the parental generation and 2 generations of offspring. They then explain their findings to understand concepts of dominant and recessive traits and inheritance of phenotypes. Students next design and conduct an experiment and perform dihybrid crosses to determine which leaf color and stem color are the dominant and recessive forms. Materials are sufficient for 30 students working in groups of 3.
