This is one lab that you don't want to miss! It's easy, the materials are inexpensive (you probably already have them at home), and it ties together multiple concepts. Winner!
In this lab, students will analyze a pedigree of a fictitious family. In the introduction, students read that "Jon and Sue Smith" were in a car accident and need a blood transfusion. The hospital asks family members to donate, but students will need to figure out which family members are able to successfully donate. To complete this lab, students will need to understand blood types, punnett squares, and pedigrees. Its a great end-of-the-unit lab when you are finished with genetics.
One piece of feedback I have gotten from my TpT store is that this lab can take a while to set up. I'm here to give you some tips to save you set up AND clean up time.
This is a great lab! But don't just take my word for it:
"A+ lab, I can't tell you how well this lab is planned out. There are great teacher instructions (for once!) and a great student lab handout/key. Everything that I need to have a successful lab and not take me 30 hours to figure everything out. I would definitely buy labs from Science Rocks." -asuzanneg
"So fun! My students had a blast. Very well organized and easy to follow. Thanks!" -Sarah H.
