Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT) is a cloning method that involves transferring a nucleus from a somatic cell of the individual to be cloned to an enucleated egg.
In this activity, learners use pedigree and jigsaw puzzles to explore how scientists use genetic information from a family to identify a gene associated with a genetic disorder.
In order to examine the random nature of mutations and natural selection, learners "breed" clutches of Egyptian Origami Birds (Avis papyrus) using random number generators (dice and coins) to mutate s
In this genetics activity, learners create and decode a “DNA recipe” for a dog by randomly selecting strips of paper that represent DNA.
Learners mark their traits for tongue rolling, PTC tasting (a harmless, bitter chemical), and earlobe attachment on tree leaf cut-outs.
In this game, learners cross off or color bingo squares in response to questions about their traits.
This guided inquiry three-part activity engages learners in thinking about the mechanism of natural selection by encouraging them to formulate questions that can be answered through scientific investi
This guided inquiry three-part activity engages learners in thinking about the mechanism of natural selection through data collection and pattern recognition.
This activity is designed to introduce learners to genes, genotypes and simple inheritance patterns.
