Minion genetics

A simple and fun way to introduce genetics to learners. 

I started by giving the learners the task of creating Easter eggs minions in April.  For this I have a model building mark out of 10. Then I introduced them to the terminology : monohybrid cross,  gene, characteristic, allele,  variation,  Punnet square,  P1,  and F1.  We also reviewed meiosis, fertilisation and zygote. 

From here we did a variety of crosses and pedigree diagrams.
