**This got a huge update on 5/31/23.**
Several years ago, I found this activity on a teacher’s blog. There were no instructions- just a few pictures of the process- and I created these instructions on my own from there. I’ve since modified the process to work for my classes.
I NEVER skip this activity- it helps students have those “lightbulb” moments that make replication click. Understanding the lagging strand can be very challenging, and I find that this activity makes it so much more accessible to students.
My class gets the modeling process done within one 45 minute period. I have them work in groups of 4 or 7 (depending on the size of my class). I assign the questions as homework.
Included: teacher info/notes, shoe templates, setup instructions, modeling instructions with diagrams, wrap up questions that make kids think critically, and an answer key for the questions.
I also sell a higher-level AP Bio/advanced bio version of this same activity.
