Students will perform crosses between fruit fly strains and observe 1) the transmission of traits from parents to offspring, and 2) that offspring produced by sexual reproduction exhibit diverse combinations of parental traits.

This lesson was designed for use with students in grade 7, but it also may be easily adjusted for use with other grade levels as appropriate.
