PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

DNA, RNA, and Protein Synthesis Complete Unit Plan Bundle

Everything you need to teach this unit in one download.

Each of these products is sold separately in my TpT store, but buying the entire unit in one download will save you money. If each of these products were purchased separately, the total cost would be $42.24. The bundled price is a savings of 38% off.


This bundled unit contains at least 2 to 3 weeks of teaching materials if you complete all of the enclosed labs. The title of this unit is DNA, RNA and Protein Synthesis. This unit has everything that a teacher needs to teach a unit on this topic to Biology or life science students. It covers: The history of DNA discoveries, the structure of DNA, replication, transcription, and translation / protein synthesis. My free preview gives a complete description of each product that is included.

You will receive 20 separate products: A 69 slide powerpoint presentation, teacher notes, student notes, 2 labs, 3 jeopardy review games, 4 daily quizzes, 4 homework assignments, 2 crossword puzzles, 1 study guide and 3 unit tests.

When appropriate, I have included each product as an editable Word document, and I have also included each product in pdf form.

All answers are included.

Topics covered by this unit are:

1) History of DNA Studies: Early concepts about genes, roles played by genes, Watson and Crick, Chargaff, Rosalind Franklin, Maurice Wilkins.
2) DNA nucleotides and their composition, purines, pyrimidines, how nucleotides are joined to one another.
3) The Watson and Crick model of DNA, the double helix, the base pairing rules, DNA as a carrier of information
4) Mechanisms by which a large amount of DNA can fit inside a small space of the nucleus, histones, nucleosomes
5) Replication of DNA: Drawings, steps in replication, DNA polymerase, hydrogen bonds, origins or replication, replication forks, complimentary strands, helicase
6) Proofreading and repairing DNA: the role of polymerases, nucleases, and ligases.
7) The Genetic Code: codons, amino acids
8) RNA: Differences between DNA and RNA, the functions of RNA, the three types of RNA (mRNA, tRNA, rRNA).
9) Transcription: Purpose of transcription, steps to transcription, promoter, terminator, RNA polymerase
10) RNA processing and editing, introns, exons
11) Understanding the genetic code, how codons translate into amino acids, start codons, stop codons, reading a table of codons
12) Translation: protein synthesis, ribosomes, steps in translation, the role of mRNA and the role of tRNA, structure of tRNA and its ability to transport amino acids, reading and deciphering the code.
13) Practice Problem: Given a DNA sequence, students will figure out the corresponding mRNA codon sequence, the tRNA anticodon sequence, and the amino acid sequence.
14) Ribosome structure: large subunit, small subunit, RNA binding sites, the entry and exit of tRNA to build a polypeptide, start codons, stop codons.
15) Mutations: definition of mutation, gene mutations, chromosome mutations, point mutations, base substitutions, base insertions or deletions, silent mutations, frameshift mutations.
16) The importance of mutations in natural selection.

Also included is a chart of amino acids and the 64 codon combinations.

All I can say is Thank you for creating this awesome unit. I am a new teacher in a small private Christian School and this unit has been so much fun to do. The kids and I are both enjoying it. I will be looking for other units soon. Thank you again for providing this to other new teachers that need a little help putting it all together!
On  January 22, 2013Science Stuff answered:
As you can imagine, it took many hours to create this unit, but your feedback makes it all worthwhile. I am so glad that my many years of experience have made your first year a little bit easier. Good luck in your teaching and continue to have fun with your students.

Product Questions & Answers

On  March 5, 2014,  Buyer asked:
Does this unit cover DNA expression (as in differentiation and environmental influences)? If not, in which unit do you cover that information?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 5, 2014Science Stuff answered:
The unit was written for a standard level Biology I class. Gene expression is a very complex topic that I cover in my AP Biology class, but I do not have these materials listed on TpT.

This unit covers the following topics:
1) History of DNA Studies: Early concepts about genes, roles played by genes, Watson and Crick, Chargaff, Rosalind Franklin, Maurice Wilkins.
2) DNA nucleotides and their composition, purines, pyrimidines, how nucleotides are joined to one another.
3) The Watson and Crick model of DNA, the double helix, the base pairing rules, DNA as a carrier of information
4) Mechanisms by which a large amount of DNA can fit inside a small space of the nucleus, histones, nucleosomes
