Learning Exercise: Human genetics survey

Title:
Human genetics survey
Material:
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.
