Here's a fun 2-3 day art activity that can help boost any science unit that focuses on genetics (DNA, Punnett Square, etc...).
DNA ALIEN - This lesson tasks students with using DNA codes to design an alien with 8 basic physical characteristics. Each part of the alien has several options. Additional papers help students use their drawing for additional tasks such as: Venn Diagramming, questions, and writing.
Included with this purchase:
1 - DNA Alien Direction Sheet
2 - DNA Alien Drawing Sheet
3 - DNA Alien Example (perfect for visual cue at the start)
4 - Two Venn Diagrams (for comparing/contrasting DNA Aliens and working toward a compare/contrast short write)
5 - Question Sheet (for use as a conclusion)
I have used this activity for many years and students love the artistic creativity and sharing their DNA Aliens on school showcases and bulletin boards when we have finished. With a few tweaks this activity can be used at upper elementary or lower high school grades as well.
Thank you for your purchase and for taking the time to leave me positive feedback.
