Why do you look sort of like your parents, somewhat like your aunts and uncles, and kind of like your grandparents? Well genetics, specifically heredity, is the answer!!
In this fun unit you will learn the answer to this question and many more. You will find out just who that Mendel guy really was, understand more about chromosomes, genes, alleles and mutations. Later you'll use Skittles to create a family through the generations, mate on paper in the gene pool, and demostrate your learning by drawing your own baby!
So lets dive right into the wonderful world of genetics!
