Beaker Babies

<p>Parter up your pupis and get them to create their ‘child’. Fun for you! Practice at genetic diagrams for your students. You will have to make a template for the chromosomes; I use pink paper for girls and blue paper for boys.They write in the code for their characteristics in the chromosome and cut it up and place it in a beaker; then they pick randomly the characteristics inherited from each person to build their child.</p>

worked really well with a high ability group (even with 28 in the group and only 5 girls). Simplified it slightly and got them to cut the 'gametes' out of the main sheet for the chromosomes. All related this to meiosis and variation in offspring. Thank
