Looking for a movie guide for Nova's Cracking Your Genetic Code?
Look no further! This 43 question printable movie guide will have students tuned in and recording important information from this engaging documentary.
I use this documentary as an introduction to Molecular Biology or Genetics in a biology class (SBI4U in Ontario). Students love seeing the relevant applications of DNA and gene-based medicine before learning the details of genetic processes like replication, transcription, and translation. This is a phenomenal documentary and I find students retain so much information by using this movie guide to guide their viewing experience.
Pro tip! Stop the movie after every 20-30 minutes and recap what you've watched by taking up the questions. Students stay engaged and are able to ensure they understand what has happened!
