7th Graders Learn About Genetic Traits

Ka‘ohu Ranis & Kaeo Rezentes
Mrs. Sullivan's 7th graders have been dissecting flowers in science. This is to better understand how Gregor Mendel bred pea plants to investigate how traits are passed from parents to offspring. Parents of  these students should be prepared to be asked questions about hitchhikers thumb, attached earlobes, and widows peak because they want to know where their dominant and recessive traits came from! They might even be able to tell you if you are heterozygous or homozygous for a specific trait! Go ahead, ask them the difference between genotype and phenotype!  Goooooo Science!
