  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

The DNA Extraction Lab has to be one of the best and easiest hands on science activities to implement! I was very nervous to do my first in class "experiment" with students. I feared a total classroom management breakdown. Surprisingly, it went much better than expected!

Materials:

  • Strawberries/kiwi (at least 2 per group)
  • Zip lock bags (one per group)
  • 2 tbs dish washing liquid per group
  • 2 tbs salt per group
  • 1 coffee filter per group
  • 1 clear plastic cup (or any other clear glass lab equipment) per group
  • ¼ cup cold rubbing alcohol per group
  • 1 coffee stirrer per group
  • A few extra plastic cups for passing out materials

To help you implement this lab, I've provided a FREE step by step presentation with student and teacher instructions. Pictures are included for every step of the way!

Access it here: FREE Step by Step Guide with Pictures

Purchasing this resource will provide you with a 4 page PDF worksheet for students. It includes a full page of background information covering the history of DNA and the reason for each of the steps in the lab.

Answer key is also included.

NGSSMS-LS3-1
Develop and use a model to describe why structural changes to genes (mutations) located on chromosomes may affect proteins and may result in harmful, beneficial, or neutral effects to the structure and function of the organism. Emphasis is on conceptual understanding that changes in genetic material may result in making different proteins. Assessment does not include specific changes at the molecular level, mechanisms for protein synthesis, or specific types of mutations.
NGSSHS-LS3-1
Ask questions to clarify relationships about the role of DNA and chromosomes in coding the instructions for characteristic traits passed from parents to offspring. Assessment does not include the phases of meiosis or the biochemical mechanism of specific steps in the process.
