We are really enjoying this module! I’ve always liked doing Punnett Squares, so it was fun to see how that translated into the Spudoodle Project. We started by watching this video on from YouTube, while it is on a lower level, it helped drive home the concept….
You Tube Video: “Gregor Mendel Punnett Square”
After viewing the video, we did a practice problem at Genetics Practice Problems from the University of Cincinnati: Clermont. Once we were sure we understood the process, we started creating our Spudoodles with instructions from Mr. MrClung’s World. (Thanks for sharing, Mr. McClung!)
So without further ado, I would like to introduce you to the Spudoodle Class of 2010:
The Spudoodle Class decided they would like to have a Grand Spudoodle, so 1st Spud and 3rd Spud created the next generation….please meet Spud Jr:
Notice that the Mohawk must have been recessive!
