FREE SCIENCE LESSON - “Reginald Punnett: A Not Very Famous Scientist You Should Know”

by UtahRoots
7th - 10th Grade

Teach about the scientist who revolutionized the practical application of genetics by inventing the Punnett Square. Why do so many people know so little about a man who had such a profound and continuing effect on agriculture and the breeding of everything from chickens to dogs? Do you even know his whole name? 

This brief biographical sketch of Reginald Punnett makes a valuable addition to your lesson resources. Use it for:

• Bell Work 
• Background information for your lesson on Punnett Squares
• Informational text, to support the ELA Common Core
• A quick task for early finishers
• Part of a biography research project
• Teaching about the practical uses of Punnett Squares
• Part of a lesson for a substitute
• Discussion about scientific issues

You won’t find better or more complete biographical sketch of Reginald Punnett written especially for students. It includes discussion questions.
