This puzzle helps students review protein synthesis (DNA structure, transcription and translation). It's a great way to review vocabulary before a test or quiz!

This activity comes with 2 options:

1. PRINT OPTION: You will cut up the triangles and students will have to arrange them in order based on matching pairs. For example, one triangle might say "nucleic acid monomer" and students would align it with the triangle that says "nucleotide." You can have students try to solve the puzzle on their own OR included is a blank template you can give students so they can see the shape of the completed puzzle.

2. DIGITAL OPTION: Students will complete the digital version in Google Slides.
