Put first and last names of you, your parents, and your grandparents.  Go back in time as far as you can.  Try to find out what the hair and eye color of each of your ancestors was.  Also, try to find out about any health problems your ancestors may have had, such as diabetes, short or long life span and other information.  More information means more points.

Mr. Wigger is partially color-blind.  This is a sex-linked characteristic.  His dad had good color vision.  His mom also had good color vision.  Use Punnett Squares to show:

1. Why Mr. Wigger is partially color blind and if he had any brother, why some might not be colorblind.

2. Why both his sisters can’t be colorblind, and if he had 20 sisters, they would all have good color vision.
