Title: Genetics and Animal Communities on Mars
Description: Students build animal colonies on Mars using basic genetics, creating Punnett Squares, and then analyzing ecological affects. This lesson challenges students to calculate the genotypes of various animals and allows them to construct populations, proportions, and percentages of different animals and then examine how populations change based on selection.  
Key Words: genetics, gene, genes, Punnett square, phenotype, genotype
