Title Bunny Babies
Audience Biology I, High School
Abstract Bunny Babies is an activity that can be used to reinforce the role of probability in the inheritance of traits. In this activity students use coins to represent the gamets of their bunny baby parents. Students need to be familiar with meiosis and the terms heterozygous, homozygous, dominate, recessive, incomplete dominance, genotype,and phenotype. After students have determined the genotypes and phenotypes for each of the traits they construct the bunny babies as models of inherited traits.
