Reflection: Trust and Respect The Monster Mash - Section 4: Guided Practice - Manufacturing Menacing Monsters


Students love to compete!  In order to maximize student interest in this lesson, they will voluntarily enter their newly created monster "baby" in our class beauty contest.  This competition allows an opportunity for students to show off their artistic talents while displaying their knowledge of genetics.  Plus, the students have a great time . . . especially the lucky student who is crowned "Beauty Queen" of the class!
