Here's our journey in Mendel's garden. My 6th graders learned about genetics and heredity last week at school. It was time to put their knowledge about genetics into action in Mendel's garden. Our first activity there was the mating game. My students mated 9 different kinds of pea to find out the genotype of each pea. They wrote their note in a laboraroty book available on the shelf. After mating the peas, my students did a Blue Obelisk quiz. It was very hard for them because they had not learned about dihybrid yet. We didn't have time to do all the activities there. We will be back there soon.
