List of Genetic Diseases and Disorders
Genetic diseases and disorders are the result of anomalies in a gene or an entire part of the chromosome of an individual. They may arise due to spontaneous mutations or may be inherited from the parents. The current article provides a list of such genetic diseases and disorders.

I just love these anatomy illustrations by graphic designer Rachel Ignotofsky. Learning about the body as a child can be pretty overwhelming but these simplistic, quirky and informative illustrations would surely help any child get to grips with the basics.
The Inheritance Game
Inheritance Game: Fun activity for study of genetics and DNA in elementary and middle school. From the University of Utah. See how traits are inherited (or not) from generation to generation. Shows how traits are inherited 50% from each parent. Students look for patterns passed from one generation to the next. Lots of fun.
