Christmas coloring activities aren't just for elementary! This NO-PREP coloring page is a perfect bell ringer, exit ticket, or quick activity to add to your DNA or Genetics unit!

Students color ornaments that have DNA triplets listed on them. After determining the correct mRNA codon, they use the codon chart provided to determine the correct color for each space.
