Build a Calf kit

Build a Calf kit

Students can start learning about simple Mendelian genetics with this kit and lesson. Students will roll dice or flip a coin to learn what trait their calf's parents will pass on, and will then analyze the traits to learn about dominant and recessive traits. Students finish the activity by coloring a picture of their calf based on the traits they discover the parents passed on.
