Ninth graders explore protein synthesis. In this DNA instructional activity students complete a worksheet and a DNA lab activity. 
Students explore the site Second Life about DNA and create a PowerPoint presentation on DNA replication. In this DNA lesson plan, students read articles, look at photos, and discuss DNA.
Students construct a model of DNA. In this genetics lesson, students create a paper model of DNA. They make complementary strands to show the semi-conservative method of DNA replication.
Students explore DNA replication. Beginning with a teacher led discussion, students examine inherited information, genes, and Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid (DNA). As the teacher models the structures of DNA, tells about the contributions of scientists, and explains DNA replication, students take notes. Finally, they draw the structure of DNA and label its parts.
Students demonstrate a working knowledge of cell interactions such as DNA replication, protein synthesis (transcription and translation), through active participation in a cooperative group.
In this modeling DNA worksheet, students examine constructed models of DNA and explore how it replicates. Students construct strands of nucleotides and examine complimentary strands.
Learners are able to distinguish between transcription and replication. They are able to distinguish between DNA and RNA. Students name some of the proteins and enzymes used in replication and transcription. They are able comprehend the direction of replication and transcription. Learners are able to identify the 3' and 5' ends of the leading and lagging strands.
Students create a model of DNA and simulate replication with their models in an activity that uses licorice, colored marshmallows, and toothpicks. Students also label a diagram of replication and indicate major parts of the DNA molecule.
In this DNA investigation instructional activity, students answer the questions provided and complete a brochure in order to gain a deeper understanding of DNA's structure and function in organisms.
Students view animations of DNA replication and transcription and complete a worksheet. In this genetics instructional activity, after watching on-line video clips to gather information about DNA replication and transcription, student teams identify facts that support the process of replications, transcriptions, and translation occurring within cells. Lesson includes ideas for further exploration.
Students study Mendelian Laws of Inheritance and differentiate between the different crosses.  In this Mendels Law lesson students describe DNA replication and genetic engineering. 
Young scholars examine DNA replication and how proteins are synthesized from DNA codes and continue to explore the effects of genetics in additional lessons. Among the topics covered are: protein synthesis, cell chemistry, environmental factors, as well as various laboratory experiments.
A simple reading passage breaks the process of DNA replication down into three steps. Young geneticists answer reading comprehension questions and describe a set of diagrams that depict the three steps. Show a PowerPoint presentation or online animation of the semiconservative model of DNA before assigning this worksheet as a reinforcement.
In this protein synthesis simulation worksheet, students practice transcribing a DNA message to RNA. They determine the total possible combinations of bases to make codons. Students practice determining what amino acids are coded for given three bases using the given table. Students work in reverse to determine a DNA sequence by starting with an amino acid message.
Students explore how DNA fits into chromosomes and how they relate to the human body.  In this DNA lesson lesson students complete web activities that teach them about DNA replication and protein synthesis. 
Students identify the different steps involved in DNA transcription. In this genetics lesson, students model the translation process. They watch a video on sickle cell anemia and explain how different alleles create this condition.
In this DNA worksheet, students access a website to determine the information that was used to understand DNA replication. Students compare the difference between observations and opinions. This worksheet has 7 short answer questions and 1 graphic organizer.
Students identify where mutations might occur and examine what effect those mutations will have through class discussion of DNA replication and cell division. Students then differentiate between mutations that affect individuals and mutations that affect entire species.
A terrific WebQuest is outlined here for your young scientists. They will learn about how proteins are made by following the instructions given to them from genes. Before the WebQuest begins, there are some terrific "front loading" activities and worksheets present in the plan. The WebQuest is easy to follow, and the culminating activity is quite good. A very fine middle to high school biology lesson plan.
These two pages cover the gamut of topics regarding reproduction and DNA replication. Structures, processes, functions, and reasons for them are tested here. The questions are mostly multiple choice, but there are also a few short-answer questions requiring the application of knowledge
