This product is an AWESOME way for students to perform protein synthesis from start to finish. Students are given 5 different genes and must first transcribe them into mRNA then use the codon wheel to translate the mRNA into a sequence of amino acids. The string of amino acids will unveil the lyrics to a well-known song. I make this activity extra fun by playing the songs in the background while students are working. They love it! It is a great way to give even the most disengaged students a confidence boost! You will need 20 blank index cards for this activity.
