In this product I outline the translation review activity I conduct with my middle school students. This allows them to visualize the translation process and how tRNA reads the mRNA and brings an amino acids. I am providing blank tRNA templates in which the anti codon and amino acid can be filled in to enhance the visualization of your students.
Using large sentence strips, Write out a mRNA strand (A G C A U G G C A). Students then use the tRNA templates and their translation charts to figure out which amino acids will be "dropped off"
Simple activity that helps students visualize the process of translation
I use these materials with my middle school science classes but they can be modified easily to suit any grade level.
