This resource allows middle school and high school students to practice transcription and protein synthesis in a fun and festive way! After transcribing DNA sequences into mRNA, they use a specialized codon chart to find words that make sentences about winter!

Students should be familiar with the terms DNA, transcription, mRNA, protein synthesis.

This is a perfect NO-PREP science or Biology lesson for the holidays. Use it for early finishers, homework practice, or even turn it into a game for the whole class!

Included in this resource:

  • Teacher Instructions for use
  • 20 DNA sequences
  • Specialized codon chart with winter words
  • Student page for recording sequences
