How do we inherit our characteristics?

 Our 200th Earthlearningidea is 'How many Great Great Great Great Grandparents? - finding out how we inherit our characteristics'

This ELI involves a class discussion about numbers of ancestors and how these affect our make-up.
In teaching about evolution, pupils first need to know how organisms inherit their characteristics. This activity helps them to do this. They can then
tackle the idea of Darwin’s ‘survival of the fittest’ for example by trying our next Earthlearningidea, ‘How
many Beany Beetles? - the evolution game: investigating evolution by adaptation and natural selection’
. This will be published on January 19th
