Today in Class:

  1.  We reviewed Acquired and Inherited Traits.  We discussed different examples and then I gave you a new set of photos of people to distinguish the types of traits that were shown.
  2. Next, we started the first Punnett Square WS.  This is a “notes” worksheet.  We completed this together.  We will work on another WS like this tomorrow, because that is the easiest way to start learning about P. Squares 🙂
  3. If you want to get a jump on Punnett Squares- here are a couple of websites for you to check out:
