Beyond the typical Candy DNA activity, this polished, guided DNA structure activity allows students to work on their own, in pairs, or with the teacher to learn by interpreting a diagram of DNA and a nucleotide and then build a candy model that illustrates an accurate DNA model.
This activity can be done during a lab period, or spread out over two classes and/or as a pre-lab for homework.
Content can be scaffolded from general biology through AP Biology.
There is an example/answer key for the model part of the activity
