Family Pedigree Extra Credit Project
The task ahead of you is to create a family pedigree (your family or a family that you know) for a trait that you will choose. Your pedigree should include at least three generations and as many family members as possible. A key must be included and the title should be self-explanatory.
Alongside the symbols for each individual in your pedigree, you should do your best to include a picture of the individual (which shows the trait, if possible).
Below is a list of dominant traits. Pick one that you think will make for an interesting pedigree.
