Product Description
COOLEST & EASIEST DNA Models ever!!!
Students make DNA models using biodegradable packing peanut models. This STEM lesson is aligned to the NGSS and requires students to think rather than just look at a picture and copy it.

LEARNING OUTCOMES**************************************************

They should be able to...
1. Determine the structure of DNA based on evidence from previous scientific endeavors.

2. Identify the following parts of a DNA molecule/polymer:
a. the monomer components and it's
structural formula
i. Phosphate
ii. Deoxyribose
iii. Nitrogenous Base

3. Name the individuals responsible for discovering the structure of DNA. Describe how they helped to discover it's structure.

4. Use Chargaff's rule.

EXPLORE/EXPLAIN PHASE of 5E Learning cycle******************************

Right after this lesson I do a DNA extraction lab that is based on using chemicals that deal with the structure of DNA. Here is a link to that lesson:

DNA Extraction Lab


This is also a good lesson to do in conjunction with my lesson on DNA replication, transcription and translation. I usually use the model building as an EXPLORE phase of the 5E learning cycle and this lesson can be used as the ELABORATE phase.
