PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for a fun holiday activity for your DNA and RNA unit? Look no further! In this protein synthesis game, students compete to make silly Thanksgiving sentences from DNA sequences.

IF YOU HAVE PURCHASED THIS PRODUCT PRIOR TO 11/23/16, PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE UPDATED ANSWER KEY. THERE WAS AN ERROR IN THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT MAY AFFECT YOUR USE OF THE LESSON.

Your students will learn valuable content about the formation of mRNA codons, transcription, translation, and protein synthesis- all while having a great time!
This game is interactive and engaging enough to maintain student interest, but simple enough for a sub plan. It can be used as part of a DNA unit or as a review activity to check student comprehension.

Included in this product:
-Teacher instructions for set-up and game play
-20 different DNA sequences
-64 printable cards with mRNA codons on one side and Thanksgiving words on the other side
-A student worksheet for recording mRNA sequences and finished sentences
-Teacher answer key with all codons and sentences for each DNA sequence
