Each student creates their own paper model of DNA, then combine their models end-to-end to make one long class model! How this activity works:Step 1 - Students color the bases, phosphates, and sugar according to the key.Step 2 - Cut out the individual shapes. Step 3 - Assemble the DNA model like a
Fun and fresh approach to building a DNA model - the results are quite diverse and interesting! Related NGSS Standards: MS-LS3-1, HS-LS3-1, HS-LS3-2, HS-LS3-3.This resource gives students clear and concise directions to build a DNA model out of upcycled or recycled "stuff". The straightforward di
Assign this Google Slides Activity in Google Classroom for distance learning! DNA mutation simulation simplified to a middle school level - fun, engaging, and standards-based. Addresses NGSS perfectly without complicating it! (Consider pairing this activity with our digital Mutant DNA Informational

Genetic evidence of evolution activity - perfectly simplified for the MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL! Also works as a modified level for high school (HS-LS4-1). The level of this activity is suited for middle school students who have very little - if any - background in DNA and protein synthesis. The activit
If you been teaching biology for a while, you know this lab well. If you are new to the scene, then let me introduce you to a must-do lab in biology. Yes; you do purify DNA in this lab using household materials.I've put a spin on a classic lab, and aligned the DNA extraction lab with the Next Gene

Students learn about the discovery of a new shape of DNA through a C.E.R. (Claim Evidence Reasoning) graphic organizer. This is great for getting your students to explain phenomena in a meaningful way and it allows you as the instructor to adequately assess their understanding of concepts. The stude
Less copies and easy to correct - save time with our test packet format!This is a very straightforward middle school-level exam that covers:Basic structure of DNAHomologous chromosomes# of chromosomes in humans (23/46, this test does NOT use terms haploid/diploid)Male/female sex chromosome arrangeme
This lesson will allow your students to see how DNA mutations can impact a ‘protein’. The students will be asked to take a strand of DNA and use it to make rice cereal treats based on their group’s individual strand. Each strand codes for a different variation of the recipe (representing DNA mutatio
Have students learn about DNA replication, mistakes in DNA replication, transcription, RNA splicing, alternative splicing, translation, transfer RNA, and the genetic code. This web quest has students filling the blanks, answering questions, drawing/labeling models, researching important vocabulary,
This is a straightforward and quick 10-question quiz on the basics of DNA. Students must be able to:Identify the phosphate, sugar, and bases in a simple diagram of DNAIdentify the proper pairing of bases in a simple diagram of DNAIdentify the function of DNAKnow the definition of "genes"Know where

This activity asks students to brainstorm and come up with a "model" or explanation for how something works. I ask students to imagine that they just had an intense workout, and now are in process of growing their muscles. The question that I pose to them is, "How does your body make more of the ce
Prior Knowledge: A basic knowledge of the structure of DNA is helpful when using this activity. I use this as a formative assessment; to help students learn the process, and to informally assess their understanding.In this fun, kinesthetic activity, the classroom transforms into the nucleus of a c
