Genetic Bugs Activity

In sixth grade we study genetics and see how dominant and recessive traits work. For this activity, students partnered up and drew two alleles out of bags. Based on their chosen traits, they combined them to make genotypes. From there, they followed a key to show the phenotype. Each bug had a different number of wings, antennas, colored eyes, and body segments. Students loved making these bugs come to life and even named them! See More Pictures Here Genetic Bugs
