Today in Class:
Today was a BIG practice day for Punnett Squares. You should have completed the SpongeBob worksheet to practice concepts like: alleles, homozygous, heterozygous, traits, dominant, recessive, genes, geontype, phenotype, …. and applied these concepts as you analyzed information regarding Punnett Square crosses. Mr. Fowler and I walked around and worked with you and your partner, and answered questions you had regarding these problems.
Homework: Make sure you have a sketch of your dragon (pencil is nice, you will be able to erase). It should be 1/2 to full sheet of paper in size.
Practice Punnett Square problems, if you think you need help.
