Learning Exercise: Human genetics survey

Human genetics survey
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.

Teacher should go over each trait to clear up any misunderstanding as well as address time limit.

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.

Type of Task

  • Student-centered

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.
