Product Description
A hands-on activity for AP / senior biology / biochemistry (organic chemistry) students, finally!

Instructions and questions guide students in constructing a section of DNA and understanding its structure. Glycosyl bonds, phosphodiester bonds, and hydrogen bonds are explored. Structural formulas for adenine, cytosine, guanine, and thymine included. Original artwork.

You and your students will love these "Building Biological Macromolecule" (biomolecule) activities because they really help reinforce concepts and deepen understanding. The final product is a valuable individual study aid containing important visuals along with key terms and definitions. Best used following your lesson on DNA.

The complete bundle can be found here: Building Biological Macromolecules: All.

The complete bundle of molecular genetics activities can be found here: Molecular Genetics: DNA, Central Dogma, Transcription,& Translation BUNDLE
