Product Description

This activity is great for introducing students to the process of translation.

After students have been introduced to the complementary base-pairing system and to the relationship between amino acids and proteins, this simple cut-and-match activity allows them to play the role of the ribosome. The mRNA codons only include G and C so that students can do the activity before being introduced to uracil.
