Material: Human genetics survey

Title: Human genetics survey
Description: I like to use this as an intro to genetics in class before I go over ANYTHING. It's great to use after you've introduced what traits are also. Students quickly pick up on what a dominant trait and a recessive trait are soon after completing assignment.
Type of Task: Student-centered, Supervised
Time Required 10 minutes (teacher discretion you could spend almost an entire class w/ this.)
Topics: Genetics, traits
Course: Biology
Audience: College General Ed, High School, Middle School
Prerequisites Skills: None, you really could start your unit off w/ this.
Learning Objectives: Students will get a better understanding of what traits are as well as the difference between dominant & recessive traits.
Technical Notes: None
Text of Learning Exercise: Teacher should go over each trait to clear up any misunderstanding as well as address time limit.
Assessment: Students will turn in survey at end of class. I also like to ask questions and get results from survey straight from class. I ask what trait showed up in the most/ least.
