Up to 16 genes control eye colour.
The green colour is produced due to the Rayleigh scattering of light in the top layer, or stroma, of the iris, with low levels of melanin in the iris. The blue effect of Rayleigh scattering combined with the brown melanin causes the eye to appear green.

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.
