Activity: Print cards double-sided and tape across room. Provide students with the DNA strand and allow them to transcribe that DNA into an mRNA strand into their notebook. After which students can move around the room to translate the mRNA into a fact about DNA. This works best in pairs with the partnerships being assigned different DNA strands and I made it a competition as to who could complete the process first. Use the answer key to ensure that you are printing the cards double-sided correctly.
