Adding to our library of short, self-directed learning modules, check out the new SNAPSHOTs on Admixture Testing and Human Genetic Variation.
These modules explore human genetic variation and ancestry testing through animations, student worksheets, and an activity that supports student understanding that ancestry test results are not definitive, but rather estimates of a person’s probable ancestry. These lessons are freely available on our website as well as PBS Learning Media (adapted to fit with clips from Finding Your Roots – Season 7).
