Bloops are strange but cute little creatures that, as teacher developer Anthony Garofalo has discovered, are perfect for helping students make sense of Mendelian genetics, especially concepts of dominance and recessiveness.
- Learn concepts of dominance and recessiveness
- Hands-on activity forming chromosomes
- Materials for 60 activities
Students pick different colored “genes” from “parental gene bags”, snap them together to form chromosomes, then “read” the color sequences to determine what traits their Bloops have inherited. Includes materials to make 60 Bloops and instructions. Grades 5–8.
