A lesson that requires students to work through a series of questions pertaining to the genetics of sickle cell disease and its relationship to malaria.
This classroom activity uses the information presented in the short film The Making of the Fittest: Natural Selection in Humans to take students through a series of questions pertaining to the genetics of sickle cell disease and its relationship to malaria resistance. The questions are divided into sections: Mendelian Genetics and Probability, Pedigrees, and Chi-Square Statistics. Within each section, the questions sequentially move from a basic level to a more advanced level in order to develop the skills of the students.
