7th Science Punnet Square Project • For the following three crosses make punnet squares for the characters in Monsters Inc. • Choose one phenotype from each cross and create a baby monster with the three characteristics. You can choose the rest of the characterisitcs yourself. • H = horns h = no horns cross: Hh x hh • F = fur f = no fur cross: Ff x Ff • S = stripes s = no stripes cross: SS x Ss • Out to the side of your drawing show each punnet square, the genotype and phenotype like your notes from today.
