Lesson plan about artifical selection and genetic variation

Veggie Variation explores the concepts of artificial selection and domestication as they apply to some of the most common vegetables we eat. Students learn about the famous pea plant experiments conducted by Gregor Mendel as well as exploring the source of genetic variation. Students complete a hands-on planting activity that follows the scientific method framework using skills like observation, creating a hypothesis, and data collection.
