Family Pedigree Project

Through the use of their understanding of Mendelian traits, students will complete at least a 3-generation pedigree for one of the provided traits (e.g., widow’s peak, connected or disconnect earlobes).

Be sure to label the pedigree correctly (generation, male/female, etc.) according to the practice done previously.

 List of common Mendelian traits:

  • Blood type
  • Tongue Roller
  • Widow’s Peak
  • Straight or Hitchiker’s Thumb
  • Connected/Disconnected Earlobes
