High schoolers 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, high schoolers take notes. Finally, they draw the structure of DNA and label its parts.
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 worksheet, students answer the questions provided and complete a brochure in order to gain a deeper understanding of DNA's structure and function in organisms.
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 DNA learning exercise, students access a website to determine the information that was used to understand DNA replication. Students compare the difference between observations and opinions. This learning exercise has 7 short answer questions and 1 graphic organizer.
Students write an essay on the basic steps of the DNA replication process accurately enough to show a complete understanding of the subject. Finally, student correctly identify the polarity of the template strand and match the correct base pair sequence
Ninth graders explore protein synthesis. In this DNA lesson students complete a worksheet and a DNA lab activity. 
In this molecular biology worksheet, students complete 50 multiple choice questions on DNA and RNA replication, translation and transcription.
Fourth graders, using candy, build models of DNA replication, RNA transcription, and tRNA translation.
High schoolers 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.
Learners 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.
After viewing this presentation, students create a complete set of notes to support their learning of DNA replication. Each slide has information on a step in DNA synthesis process. The slides focus primarily on the processes rather than the chemistry behind each procedure. Some of the diagrams have areas for the teacher to fill in descriptions at certain stages in the lecture.  
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 DNA worksheet, students review nucleic acids, base sequences of DNA, mRNA, and DNA replication. Students use a chart to create a graph showing age of organisms and mistakes made during replication. This worksheet as 1 graph, 4 short answer, and 14 fill in the blank questions.
Students explore physical science by participating in a science role-play activity. In this DNA structure lesson, students discuss the different parts of the code that makes up our DNA and instructs our cells. Students utilize the letters of GCAT and create signs which identify them as different parts of a DNA strand.
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.
Students 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. Students are able to identify the 3' and 5' ends of the leading and lagging strands.
Students describe the cell cycle. They make a connection between DNA replication and cell division. Students describe the parts of the cell that participate in cell division and the steps of cell division.
After your genetics class has learned about DNA replication, you can assess their understanding with this worksheet. Pupils write short answers describing the enzymes that support replication and the steps fo the process. They are also asked to diagram a DNA molecule undergoing replication and including helicase, polymerase, a replication fork, the leading and lagging strands. It would be smart to keep this handy worksheet on hand to give your class as a pop quiz or homework assignment.
In this DNA worksheet, students review the structure of DNA, the importance of the nucleotide sequence, and how DNA replicates. This worksheet has 5 fill in the blank and 9 short answer questions.
