Create a "polypeptide" chain using beads and pipe cleaners. Model mutations. Use codon wheel to match mRNA codons with "amino acid" beads. Customizable based on your materials (you may use string or pipe cleaners to attach beads)
Build a structure of DNA molecule using different pastas and pipe cleaners. The pasta represents the "backbone" and the pipe cleaners represent the nitrogenous bases. Students can label with tape and use as a resource.
