Great lesson to introduce

Great lesson to introduce genetics to middle school students. Punnett Square instruction is well developed and thorough. Visual representation of flower colors rather than the typical letters is very effective. Interactive nature of lesson is appealing for students. Was unable to start both videos.

Clip did not work! Advice?

The activity was great except for the fact that the clips on slide 2 and 3 would not work on my PC. The clips would work on my mac at home, but they would not work on my pc at school. Any advice would be appreciated.

Multimedia clip?

Good way of having students interact by moving the generations of pea plants. I received an error message when I tried to play the multimedia clip on the second slide.
