This Lab includes:
A pre reading assignment where students must read and answer text dependent questions. The article is about genetically engineered mice that do not feel pain.
A powerpoint presentation over the structure of DNA and a description of protein synthesis. A short video clip at the end of the powerpoint is also provided to help students visualize protein synthesis.
A lab in which students extract the DNA out of strawberries. The lab needs little set up as far as supplies and students love visually seeing the DNA!
