These worksheets are scaffolded and designed to walk students through the steps of protein synthesis- starting with baby steps, but by the end they'll be pros!
Three editable worksheets included.
A digital version is also hosted on Google Slides.
1) DNA and RNA Practice (From DNA to Proteins)- Students compare DNA and RNA; then practice transcribing DNA sequences into mRNA, then to tRNA.
2) Practice Decoding the Genetic Code- Students match DNA sequences to proteins.
3) Breaking the Genetic Code- The most complex of the three worksheets (should be saved for last)- enforces the concepts of transcription and translation.
PDF and PPT format for editing. Answer keys included.
