Title: Dragon Genetics
Description: Students will construct a model of a dragon based on traits inherited from the parent dragons. This activity demonstrates the inheritance of dominant and recessive traits, codominance, and incomplete dominance. Students will use Punnett Squares to predict genotypic and phenotypic ratios of the dragon population in the class. This project could serve as a culminating activity for Genetics and the Inheritance of traits.   This activity was adapted from Alabama Science in Motion. This lesson results from a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.
