Having finished the chapter on genetics, Coach Collins’s 7th grade science classes visited the American Freedom Museum for an application lab. Yes! Science and history can go together.
Students analyzed the phenotypes of the Presidents and recorded their genotypes in a lab table. Then, using the genotypes, students created a phenotype of their President when he was 12 years old. Most of the time, student’s created a likeness that clearly resembled the president. Genetics are amazing!
