Heredity

After a long weekend to visit my ailing father, followed by a long week of ailing myself, I am back to blogging and other things.

After finding this site, My Science Box, and especially the Genetics and Evolution Box, I altered the way I planned to do DNA and genetics with my 10 - 14yo lab kids. In fact, the organization is almost the opposite of how I had planned to do it. But I like this new way.

And it started well today. But I forgot to get pictures. Just let me say that the kids all enjoyed filling out the traits sheet. Each had one parent and most had a sibling hanging around so they could fill in the form about other relatives. Next week we will make babies. PRM

I have tried to fix the link.

I am having email trouble (reminds me of a John Waters movie) but I should be able to receive email at prmanning@yahoo.com.
