This is a bundle of 5 activities plus a foldable codon chart to help students learn about mutations. Gene mutations AND chromosomal mutations are covered, as well as missense, nonsense, and silent mutations.
In the bundle you will find...
❃ Gene mutations flap book
(deletion, insertion, substitution)
-students use the diagrams to determine which mutations are represented, and provide the details.
❃Chromosomal mutations flap book
(inversion, translocation, deletion, duplication) -students use the diagrams to label the mutation and provide the details under the flap.
❃Missense Nonsense Silent
-students create their own missense, nonsense and silent mutations using the codon chart
❃Modeling Insertion Trifold
-students follow the directions and create their own insertion mutation, comparing the amino acid sequences before and after.
❃Point mutation vs. Frameshift mutation Venn Diagram
-Students compare point and frameshift mutations
❃Foldable DNA codon chart
-lifts up so students have room underneath should they need to jot down a few notes
