Limited Capacity seats available

Gregor Mendel's discovery concerning how traits in pea plants are passed from one generation to the next has had, and continues to have, a significant impact on agricultural development. Mendelian Genetics enables animal and plant breeders to produce new, improved, and higher yielding varieties with more accuracy. In this session attendees will participate in engaging, hands-on activities that can be used to teach students about concepts of heredity. We will use informational texts to explore significant discoveries related to heredity, participate in activities that illustrate how inherited traits are expressed, and create pompom Punnett squares. The lessons and activities presented in this session align with fifth grade Utah Science Core Standards.
