Thanks to this game, my kindergartener knows that it takes two inherited copies of a recessive gene to express that recessive trait. And the best part is that she had fun learning it!
The set-up is simple: over ten rounds, you roll the dice to see whether your cat inherits dominant or recessive traits from its parents. Then, using the included white boards and markers, you draw the traits (round or not-round head, four legs or not four legs, etc.). At the end of the game, whoever has the cat with the most recessive traits wins!
My kids love getting "crazy" with their drawings -- even if you get the dominant trait for eyes and have to draw two of them, nothing says the eyes have to be fastened to the cat's face!
Highly recommended for pre-K through elementary school (and it's fun for the grown-ups too).
