This amazingly fun activity will allow students to pair up in groups and make a monster by flipping a coin. This activity will reinforce genetic terminology.  Each student will contribute an allele for each trait determined by heads or tails. They will make combinations that yield different genotypes and phenotypes.

Better way to teach math, but it just makes too much sense for public schools to implement.

Supposed to make sense. I am an extreme idiot when it comes to math. Sooo glad I'm finished with math courses.

Great pictures of observable human traits, from the Genetic Science Learning Center. We did human traits, and creating a dog,

Admit it, you’ve always wondered “How in the heck can I *see* my own DNA by using commonly found household items?”. Well, you’re in luck because there’s a tutorial for that.

Here's How to Extra Your own DNA [video]

Extract Your DNA: Ever wish you could see the strands of genetic material that make you. You can, and there's no fancy lab equipment required. In this NOVA video short, learn how to extract your own DNA using just a few common household items.

This is a Middle School genetics simulation in which students create an imaginary creature from a "code" of colored squares of paper - to teach how it's possible for DNA to create so much diversity.   Priced product.
