Gingerdead Genetics

While we were distracted by the Gingerdead War happening in the kitchen this week a love story has been blossoming at the other end of the bench. Nawww

Now, I don’t know a lot about Gingerdead genetics but there’s a lesson plan in here somewhere.

First a couple of Gingerdead skelemen got together and produced a couple of crumbs.  The Gingerdead family was born.

The little one had an itch to scratch and you can see that didn’t go too well.  He seems to like having his eye handy like that, though.  Apparently it makes watching for mummydead men a lot easier when you are hiding behind the toaster.

In a shocking turn of events the two became three and an interesting phenotype appeared.

I haven’t sat down and done the punnet squares, but I shall keep an eye on future events and keep you posted.  I’m sure there’s a lesson plan here somewhere 😉

In the meantime, if you on the lookout for a good genetics lesson then these Spongebob Squarepants Genetics classroom resources from The Science Spot have been a hit in any class I’ve seen them used in.
