Lab-Aids: Investigating Selective Breeding Kit
In this series of two activities students explore inherited traits. They use LAB-AIDS‚® simulated corn ears and Punnett squares to gather data on, interpret, and predict the probability of traits being passed from parent to offspring. They then read about survival of the fittest, natural selection, selective breeding, and the relationships between these concepts.
