Science Project: Family Tree

On Monday, students received their family tree project assignment. Your student will create a poster of a family tree that traces genetic traits and/or learned traits over three generations. Students have the choice to research their own family, the family of another species, such as a pet, or a famous person's family! The goal is for students to gain experience tracing the lineage of specific traits within a family and to relate this experience to our studies of genetics. My hope is that the options provided will help every student have a positive experience with this assignment.
