Why are Beebop babies in the same family different? Model how sexual reproduction results in offspring with different characteristics.

Which Beebop babies are most likely to survive and reproduce? Explore how natural selection affects the frequency of characteristics and genes in the Beebop population.

  • Use paper chromosomes to show how meiosis produces egg and sperm cells
  • Combine the egg and sperm cells to produce a zygote (fertilized egg).
  • Decode the genes in the zygote to produce an adorable baby Beebop.
  • Compare your baby Beebop to other babies in the Beebop Family Album.
  • Use information on the Beebops' environment to select which Beebop babies will survive and reproduce.
