Educator Resources for Heredity

Ever hear the phrase ‘Like father like son?’ In this BrainPOP movie on heredity, Tim and Moby will teach you all about how you inherit your looks, height, size and chemical make-up from your parents! You’ll also meet 19th century scientist Gregor Mendel, who used short and tall pea plants to study heredity, and British mathematician Reginald Punnett, whose Punnett Square lets you predict what you would get if you crossed a tall plant with a short plant. If you’ve always wanted to know why you’re taller than your parents, or why you have blue eyes when your parents have brown eyes, then check this movie out!
