Type of Resource



This storyline introduces heredity, alleles, genes, dominant traits, and recessive traits. Sasha’s panganog, Dashwood, has just had twin noglets. But who is the father? Players help Sasha find clues about the panganog who fathered the twins using heredity and genetics. Family members tend to resemble one another, but why? And if genetics are inherited randomly, why isn't there more diversity within species?
