In science, we were learning about genetics. We did this thing called the paper pet family project to learn how genes are inherited from you parents. I learned how genes are inherited from parent to offspring. To inherit you looks, you have this things called genotypes. Genotypes are used to determine your phenotype. Genotypes look like this, Bb. We also use punnet squares to keep track of genotypes.

This project relates to my family because I inherit my looks from my parents. In my family, brown hair is the dominant trait and black hair is the recessive. So the genotype would look like this, BB, Bb, bb. The big b is the dominant trait which is brown hair and the little b is recessive trait for black hair. My family also has brown eyes which is dominant and black eyes which is recessive.
