We kicked things off today with a reading about the mysterious blue people of the hills of Kentucky: The Blue People of Troublesome Creek
This led to the introduction of Gregor Mendel, adorably (and quickly) summarized in this video:
We concluded with a crash course in Punnett squares, discussing dominant and recessive traits, homozygous and heterozygous alleles, and phenotypes and genotypes.
It was a heady day. Ask your child about the blue people of Kentucky, or try out some Punnett squares together and piece together some family history!
