DNA Structure Practice
On the first page, molecular biologists answer questions about DNA structure and label a DNA molecule. The formatting isn't great on this first page, but the questions make an appropriate review. On the second page, and this is a highlight, a diagram of an unwound DNA molecule is displayed.

What is Personal Genetics?
Adolescents have the opportunity to consider how they feel about the possibilities presented by the current availability of genetic sequencing. After some instruction, they participate in a four-corners activity in which you read a controversial statement, and they gather into groups depending on whether they strongly agree, agree, disagree, or strongly disagree.

Variation in a Species
If there are no extenuating environmental factors to ensure competition in a species, then variation is achieved by random mutation. This resource may be more useful after viewers are introduced to the concepts of alleles and the heredity involved with sexual reproduction.

Natural Selection and the Owl Butterfly
The lecturer describes how certain characteristics develop. In this case, he discusses eye marking. The impact of environmental factors plays a huge role in the probability of successful reproduction and the fact that favorable genes will be passed on to repeat the same characteristic.
