Add a little fantasy to your genetics unit by having students practice doing genetic crosses using dragons as specimens. Dragon traits include fire breathing, wingless, and color. I have students practice on whiteboards as we work through the slides and then I have students share their solutions with the class. The level 2 questions include a cross with two traits and a codominant trait in dragons (scale color.) You can save the slides to you own google drive and create additional questions and traits found in dragons. I have also had students create their own traits to add to our dragon genetics and then create their own practice problems to trade with other groups. Ideas students have shared: horns, invisibility, magic, claws, legs, eye color. Students are only limited by their own imaginations!
