To help students understand these basic genetic concepts, we developed an in-class activity to connect genetics concepts with students’ lived experiences. Using a deck of playing cards with the cards representing chromosomes, teams of students practice applying inheritance patterns learned in class to “make a baby”. Details of the activity and results are presented.
