Product Details

Students create models of red blood cells, and the possible antigens present on the surface for the eight blood types (Type O+, O-, A+, A-, B+, B-, AB+, and AB-). They then identify the possible genotypes for each blood type. Using Punnett squares they determine the probability of a child having a certain blood type based on the blood types of the parents. Lastly, they will use their understanding of blood types and inheritance patterns to determine the possible father of a child based on the child’s and parents’ blood types. Includes access to pre-lab videos, editable lab instructions, downloadable student handouts, detailed background information, safety information, teacher notes with answers to all questions and sample data, and teaching and lab tips.
