Activity Description of "Genetics Role Play"

Title Genetics Role Play
Audience High School Biology
Abstract This activity is an excellent way to involve your students in discovering more about various genetic anomalies. They must participate in groups as they explore the implications of genetic disorders, and then make some decisions based on the information they have gathered. I find this to be one of the best activities I use all year in my classroom!
