PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

From this crossword puzzle, students will: describe the overall structure of DNA and its components; identify the complementary base pairs of DNA; relate gene, DNA, RNA, and protein; describe the overall process by which proteins are produced; describe how the cell making proteins is like a factory making food items; describe the structure of RNA; describe the main differences between RNA and DNA; describe the complementary base pairing in RNA; describe the role of codons; describe what happens during transcription and translation; and describe DNA as an information system.

Words used include: transformation, bacteriophage, deoxyribose, adenine, guanine, cytosine, thymine, codon, uracil, ribose, nucleus, DNA, gene, messenger RNA, rough endoplasmic reticulum, ribosome, transfer RNA, amino acids, protein, transcription, translation, polypeptide, mutation, and point mutation. These words are listed in the second spreadsheet, but you can delete them if desired.

This crossword puzzle is in Microsoft Excel format. If you decide to print it for hard copy use, then in Print Settings select “Landscape Orientation” and “Fit Sheet on One Page.” However, students who have access to a computer or tablet can electronically complete the puzzle in Excel. Completing it directly in Excel allows for easy corrections to be made and eliminates any messy mistakes. Students may also submit their completed puzzle to you electronically.

The preview shows the completed puzzle, so it is the answer key.
