Extend your unit on inheritance, heredity, and Punnett squares with this ready to use worksheet on codominance, incomplete dominance, and blood types. This resource is perfect follow up to simple Mendelian genetics and monohybrid crosses.
This product includes 5 page genetics practice covering co and incomplete dominance. Includes a short reading passage describing the inheritance types and questions of all levels.
3 pages of this product cover blood types alone, and can be split into two separate worksheets if desired.
Uses for this product:
- An independent work station in a set of stations
- Flipped Classroom pre-reading
- Whole or small group opportunity to model and teach Close Reading strategies and annotation
- Differentiation – Assign this reading as researching for students who have yet to show mastery.

NGSS Standards covered by this worksheet on codominance, incomplete dominance, and blood types :
HS-LS3-2 Make and defend a claim based on evidence that inheritable genetic variations may result from (1) new genetic combinations through meiosis, (2) viable errors occurring during replication, and/or (3) mutations caused by environmental factors. Emphasis is on using data to support arguments for the way variation occurs. Assessment does not include the phases of meiosis or the biochemical mechanism of specific steps in the process.
HS-LS3-3 Apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population. Emphasis is on the use of mathematics to describe the probability of traits as it relates to genetic and environmental factors in the expression of traits. Assessment does not include Hardy-Weinberg calculations.
