Science Goes to the Dogs

“Science Class Goes to the Dogs” is an interdisciplinary project that looks at how dominant and recessive genes work. Each student studied a dog breed with specific traits, and “crossed” their dog with the breed of another student's. The class then used a tool for calculating probability (a Punnett Square) to determine what the offspring would look like. Finally, we created dog sculptures to model the traits of our various canines. The 7th grade geneticists would like to thank Cristina Lozano for her invaluable assistance (and a great time!) in the art studio with this science project!
