This activity is to be used to give students extra practice with protein synthesis, using a creative way of doing so---with taco fixings. This activity is easier done in class, than outside of class. Students can use markers, colored pencils, and construction paper to add color to their final product. A key is provided along with both teacher and student instructions, and questions to follow up on the activity. This product is aligned with the NGSS standard HS-LS1-1.
