CPO Science Crazy Traits Equipment Module is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Model! I participated in a conference session using the Crazy Traits models. Through a grant I purchased a set of 6 models that I use with 7th and 8th grade students for the study of genetic traits, practice with Punnet Squares, and biodiversity. The students really enjoy developing their creatures using the phenotype and genotype information. I find that the 7th graders become comfrotable in using the vocabulary terms associated with the study of genetics. As 8th graders, they revisit the genetic terms and build a creature model with variations and adaptations that help the organism survive. Using the cards included in the kit, the students determine which traits that are an advantage and a disadvantage for their species. Student groups created their own cards that are shared with the group. The activities open many opportunities for including ELA skills in the science classroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from crazy for crazy traits I purchased 4 a year ago. This is one of the best investments that I have accrued for teaching genetics. My students love them and want to continue to examine them long after the lesson is over. I highly recommend this.
