Botheads - A Genetic Variation Simulation
FB1745
Arouse curiosity and stimulate interest in genetics with this creative activity. What role do inherited characteristics play in the development of an organism's physical appearance? Students select a random set of gene cards (the genotype) and then u...
 
Baby Genes Kit
FB1575
Why do some children look so much like their parents and others do not? Students randomly select a sperm cell and an egg for a potential child. When the simulated fertilization occurs, the resulting baby is compared to its parents. A second child is ...
 
Genetics of Taste - Student Laboratory Kit
FB1431
Why are some people very sensitive to the taste of spicy food while others are not? Is this taste sensitivity inherited? This laboratory activity will explore whether the ability to taste various substances is genetic. Students will be involved in co...
 
Genetics of Taste - Super Value Laboratory Kit
FB2064
Why are some people very sensitive to the taste of spicy food while others are not? Is this taste sensitivity inherited? This laboratory activity will explore whether the ability to taste various substances is genetic. Students will be involved in co...
 
Discover the Possibilities! A Genetics Probability Activity
FB0485
An entire genetics unit in a single kit! Students work at their own pace through this guided-inquiry activity to discover the principles of Mendelian genetics. Introductory exercises help students become familiar with the basic vocabulary of genetics...
 
Understanding the Human Genome -
Student Laboratory Kit
FB1802
Students will be excited to learn about heredity, genetics, and the human genome as they examine traits on their favorite test subject—themselves! Common dominant and recessive human traits are explored, some more obvious than others. Widow's peak vs...
 
Understanding the Human Genome - Super Value Laboratory Kit
FB2059
Students will be excited to learn about heredity, genetics, and the human genome as they examine traits on their favorite test subject—themselves! Common dominant and recessive human traits are explored, some more obvious than others. Widow's peak vs...
 
Tracking Traits with Pedigree Charts—Genetics Demonstration Kit
FB1965
As students help construct and then analyze a pedigree chart of England’s Queen Victoria, they learn about sex-linked traits and the genetic patterns associated with sex-linked inheritance. This 5’ x 2 1/2’ large-scale magnetic chart is easily assemb...
 
Eye Color and Polygenic Inheritance—Student Laboratory Kit
FB1918
Students are intrigued to learn exactly why they often exhibit traits similar to their parents. By performing this straightforward mathematical and visual example, students are able to thoroughly grasp complex genetic concepts. This activity simulate...
 
Genetic Code Kit
FB1441
Don't have students just read or listen to you talk about DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis. Get them up out of their chairs and involved in transcription and translation! The coded messages on the DNA and tRNA code cards in this kit will add fun to le...
 
Karyotyping with Ideograms - Super Value Kit
FB1858
Looking for a fresh and exciting way to teach genetics? In this unique activity, students create chromosomal maps using idealized diagrams of human chromosomes. The process is similar to that used by geneticists-students match homologous chromosomes ...
 
Magnetic Karyotypes—Biological Demonstration Kit
FB1976
Teach students to identify and classify chromosome smears according to the Denver System using large magnetic demonstration models of chromosomes! Begin by building a karyotype of a normal male and a normal female on your magnetic classroom board. In...
 
Human Karyotyping Kit
FB1111
Large simulated chromosome smears make this kit one of a kind. Your students can now realistically cut out chromosomes and use key characteristics to match them into pairs. The concept of chromosome pairing (homologous pairs) will have new meaning as...
 
Corn Genetics
FB1429
Students count the corn kernels of various phenotypes on ears of genetic corn. Based upon their data and calculated predictions, students will be able to establish the genotype of the parent corn that produced their laboratory specimen. Two different...
 
Fruit Fly Genetics Simulation Kit
FB1912
Want to perform a fruit fly genetics lab without setting up and maintaining live Drosophila cultures? This kit is for you! Students use hands-on card activity to investigate all of the key genetics concepts, including genotypes versus phenotypes, dom...
 
Heredity and Environment Kit
FB1564
Which is more important - Heredity or Environment? Students investigate this age-old question using albino tobacco seeds from heterozygous parents-ones that should produce a ratio of three green for every one albino tobacco plant. Some seeds are germ...
 
Genetically-Modified Food - Student Laboratory Kit
FB1594
Your students will gain insight into genetically-modified food as they compare the growth of traditional soybean seeds with seeds that have been genetically modified to withstand the effects of a widely-used herbicide. What are the implications for o...
 
Transcription and Gene Expression in Bacteria Student Lab Kit
FB1866
Explore the effect of temperature on gene expression in bacteria, and learn how genes are turned on and off in response to environmental conditions! Student lab kit provides a simple method to improve student understanding of the factors that control...
 
Sordaria Genetics - Advanced Student Laboratory Kit
FB2001
Students prepare cross plates and cross wild type and mutant strains of Sordaria fimicola in this advanced genetics laboratory. Daily observation of the growing culture provides an opportunity to observe the life cycle of a member of the fungal kingd...
