I saw this
genetics experiment activity on
School For Us and we decided to try it out. Instead of
flipping coins though, Ethan and I each had 2 cards - one said
dominant and the other said recessive. We each chose either
dominant or recessive each time and presented our card to the other
person and then discovered from the chart which trait our "person"
would have. We made a mom, a dad and then used those traits to
make a kid.

We worked on Punnett Squares and used the
clues to figure out to which alien parents little lost George belonged.

Monster Match - we had fun playing around with this
Ethan and I each made
up a female monster and a male monster with chosen traits from the
chart on this page . We then traded our males to match up
with our females and see what their babies would look like if they
had children monsters together. It was a lot of fun! We
want to do more with this project. We're thinking of making an
online "monster bride" shop where others can play along with us and
discover what the babies might look like.

I just found this cat poster which
shows some the possibilities for eye color, fur color, paw color,
etc for each type of cat. I think this would be great to use
with animal lovers when studying genetics.
It's a printable poster.
