This Project Oriented set of lessons requires the students to cut four sheets, 8 1/2 X 11, and glue them together to form one 17X22 poster size page ready for glue onto a card stock poster cardboard sheet purchased separately at most drug stores/Michael's/ Craft stores.
The result is and almost one foot high cube with many lessons on the Genetic Code, including a three foot model of a Chromosome tagged and labeled appropriately with the chemistry that forms them.
The booklet is a series of hands-on construction projects.

EXCELLENT FOR INTERCITY SCHOOLS AND BEHAVIORAL MOD IN THE CLASSROOM
Each of the eight cubes which every student is assigned to construct focuses upon a particular topic related to the study of the Cell and the genetics/traits subject matter.
(Includes one SMALL assembled model for instructional purposes, a SMALL Double Helix Model, one sample 17X22 sheet, and all the templates to be photocopy nto 8 1/2 X 11 paper for the students. These unit are shipped separately.)
The First and largest cube-shaped Graphic Organizer represents a model of the Plant Cell.
It is used to illustrate Cellular Respiration and Photosynthesis.
The other seven cubes are progressively smaller and will fit snugly inside of one another.
The finished project contains eight cubes, boxes-inside-of-boxes, one inside of the other and effectively a 3-D Graphic representation of the course subject matter.
This booklet also includes templates which are photocopied and distributed to each student for the building a double helix model of a Chromosome.
Students construct a short length of a Chromosome which shows how the corresponding neucleotides match up with each other.
The subject matter of the cubes, in general, parallel the traditional text book presentation of Genetics.
Felt tips, colored pencils, underliners, etc are used to code various parts of the cubes.
This adds a dimension to the general understanding of the models as the teacher specifies the relationships between the various graphics.
Cut-out letters are properly glued to match up correctly with the parts of the models.
Each of these educational projects contains templates which the teacher photocopies and passes ot to the students. This means that, year after year, the 24 lessons are available for inclusion with the other instructional methods used. '
The cutting, folding, and review of the material printed on these Graphic Organizers is followed by teacher-student interaction where comments and information can be penciled in appropriately and high lite liners are used to emphaize important items and ideas.
The project requires that each of the eight pages be cut and folded in order to form a series of eight cube-shaped Graphic Organizers. Each of these cube-shaped Graphic Organizers pertains to a topic on the subject of cellular genetics and traits.
When these models are completely constructed they become manipulatives as shown in the illustration of the Punnet Square Cube, the demonstration of breathing in CO2 and expiration of Oxygen. Photosynthesis is illustrated by manipulation the model of a Plant Cell, etc.
