Students learn genetics vocabulary (traits, hereditary, dominant, recessive) and Punnett Squares with this NO PREP digital resource. Use this resource for distance learning or in class. The information on these Google Slides is interactive with drag and drop activities. Use as a stand-alone lesson to teach the basics of Genetics, or a comprehensive reinforcement after an introduction to the concepts.
Genetics Vocabulary explained:
- Homozygous Dominant
- Homozygous Recessive
- Punnett Square
Your students will learn these concepts and then be challenged to use what they learned through interactive activities:
- Sort Genotypes as Heterozygous, Homozygous Dominant or Homozygous Recessive
- Genotype vs Phenotype examples and definitions
- Which Genotype would produce which Phenotype?
- Which Phenotype would come from a given Genotype?
After learning how to work Punnett squares, they will complete six using drag and drop alleles, along with percent probability questions for each genotype and phenotype.
This resource includes:
- Google Slides set: 18 interactive Google Slides that teach students the basics of Punnett squares and genetics vocabulary
- Full KEY to the Google Slides activity The Key can be used for grading by the teacher, or given to students to self-check their work.
- Basic Genetics Guided Notes sheet. One more way students will interact with the content. The notes can be printed or completed digitally in Google Docs.

This resource is INCREDIBLE for my mild/moderate Biology students. Punnett squares is difficult enough to teach online, this resource really helped. I love the way she did the readings and vocabulary words. – Michelle H. – February 5, 2021
