Looking for something fun to do in Biology class around Valentine's Day? Want it to still be educational?
This activity uses protein synthesis to determine how students will decorate a Valentine's Day card. For each card students will determine the card image, the main color, and the message using protein synthesis. They are given the DNA strand and must go through transcription and translation to figure out the components of their design. There are 24 different combinations so all students will make a different card.
Students can make their cards from scratch or use the blank templates provided. One set of templates will even fold like a card so they can write on the inside and give it away!
A teacher key has been provided which makes grading super fast and easy.
This is a quick activity. Great for review or just to fill a little time around the holiday!
