Product Details

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. straight hairlines are easy to see. Tongue rollers vs. non-tongue rollers and PTC tasters versus non-PTC tasters will require a little more investigating. Safely teach blood type inheritance using the simulated blood. Teacher’s Notes included.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Super Value Kit is complete for 5 classes of 30 students working in pairs.
