    Description

    This complete teaching unit on DNA, RNA, and Protein Synthesis includes everything you need to teach this unit to your life science or biology students. Resources include a 120-slide PowerPoint presentation packed with colorful and interesting photographs and images, teacher notes, printable and digital student notes, labs, study guides, homework assignments, Jeopardy-style review games, crossword puzzles, quizzes, and final unit tests. Includes everything you need right at your fingertips for a complete unit on DNA and RNA.

    From the engaging PowerPoint to the final unit test, this bundle contains loads of NO PREP materials that are ready to be used with your students. Many of the resources in this bundle are available in paperless digital formats for use in Google Drive, Google Classroom, Microsoft OneDrive, or similar.

    What is included in this bundle? ( Items marked with ** have both printable and digital versions.)

    I have also included a Teacher Guide containing tips for implementation, suggestions for sequencing, and alignment to NGSS standards.

    When appropriate, I have included each product as an editable Word document, and I have also included each product in pdf form.

    All answers are included.

    Topics covered by this unit include:

    • History of DNA Studies: Early concepts about genes, roles played by genes, Watson and Crick, Chargaff, Rosalind Franklin, Maurice Wilkins.
    • DNA nucleotides and their composition, purines, pyrimidines, how nucleotides are joined to one another, nitrogen bases.
    • Chargaff’s Rules and the X-Ray evidence by Rosalind Franklin
    • The Watson and Crick model of DNA, the double helix, the base pairing rules, DNA as a carrier of information.
    • Mechanisms by which a large amount of DNA can fit inside a small space of the nucleus, histones, nucleosomes.
    • Replication of DNA: Drawings, steps in replication, DNA polymerase, hydrogen bonds, origins or replication, replication forks, complementary strands, helicase.
    • Proofreading and repairing DNA: the role of polymerases, nucleases, and ligases.
    • The Genetic Code: codons, amino acids.
    • RNA: Differences between DNA and RNA, the functions of RNA, the three types of RNA (mRNA, tRNA, rRNA).
    • Transcription: Purpose of transcription, steps to transcription, promoter, terminator, RNA polymerase.
    • RNA processing and editing, introns, exons.
    • Understanding the genetic code, how codons translate into amino acids, start codons, stop codons, reading a table of codons.
    • Translation: protein synthesis, ribosomes, steps in translation, the role of mRNA and the role of tRNA, structure of tRNA and its ability to transport amino acids, reading and deciphering the code.
    • Practice Problem: Given a DNA sequence, students will figure out the corresponding mRNA codon sequence, the tRNA anticodon sequence, and the amino acid sequence.
    • Ribosome structure: large subunit, small subunit, RNA binding sites, the entry and exit of tRNA to build a polypeptide, start codons, stop codons.
    • Mutations: definition of mutation, gene mutations, chromosome mutations, point mutations, base substitutions, base insertions or deletions, silent mutations, frameshift mutations, the importance of mutations in natural selection.

    Standards

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    NGSSHS-LS1-1
    Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins, which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells. Assessment does not include identification of specific cell or tissue types, whole body systems, specific protein structures and functions, or the biochemistry of protein synthesis.
    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.
    Analyze the structure of the relationships among concepts in a text, including relationships among key terms (e.g., force, friction, reaction force, energy).
    Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 9–10 texts and topics.
    Follow precisely a complex multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks, attending to special cases or exceptions defined in the text.
