Time to stock up on plastic easter eggs. It’s actually pretty difficult to get these little guys at other times of the year, but before Easter, you can find them everywhere!
You can buy a whole bunch of eggs, , some pipe cleaners, and some googly eyes with about $10. Then, get out your hot glue gun, glue some eyes on, and download my free Elementary Easter Egg Genetics Activity Packet:
Middle school teachers, you can use my elementary activity and adapt it to your classes’ needs, or you can find my more advanced middle school edition. It has similar activities to my elementary version, but it teaches a lot more vocabulary, including the terms “dominant”, “recessive”, “heterozygote”, “homozygote”, and the basics of Punnett Squares.
