Showing 1 - 20 of 190 resources
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.
Genetics 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 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.
High schoolers 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. High schoolers are able to identify the 3' and 5' ends of the leading and lagging strands.
Games and Activities to Teach Molecular Genetics
High schoolers demonstrate a working knowledge of cell interactions such as DNA replication, protein synthesis (transcription and translation), through active participation in a cooperative group.
(Clues to) Copying the Codes: Examining the Evidence
Students view animations of DNA replication and transcription and complete a worksheet. In this genetics lesson, 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.
Sociobiology: Heredity Factors
Learners 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.
Section: The Replication of DNA
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.
Three steps are needed to extract DNA from learners' inner cheek cells. The procedure and reasons for each step are explained. As enzymes work on the cells, a series of questions are answered regarding the structure of the DNA molecule. As the third step is in process, questions about DNA replication are also addressed. Finally, the DNA strands are placed into tiny tubes and hung on necklaces for biologists to wear home! If you can obtain the tubes, this would be a unique and memorable enrichment.
Clues to Copying the Code
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.
DNA and Protein Synthesis in the Cell
Students explore how DNA fits into chromosomes and how they relate to the human body. In this DNA instructional activity instructional activity students complete web activities that teach them about DNA replication and protein synthesis.
DNA Replication - How Does DNA Copy Itself?
A concise overview of the DNA replication process is pitched in this presentation. Direct and viewer friendly, most slides contain a new bit of information along with a diagram to increase understanding. Your biology class will explore the currently accepted semi-conservative model of replication. They will learn about the enzymes involved and the mechanisms employed. What would really enhance this presentation is an animation showing the process in action.
DNA Replication Worksheet
For this DNA worksheet, students determine why, when, and where DNA replication occurs. This worksheet has 7 short answer questions.
How Things Go Wrong
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.
2D Animation of Cellular Processes
Students create an animation of a cell process and insert it into a presentation. They choose a cellular process such as mitosis, osmosis or DNA replication, and create a simple 2D animation.
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.
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
Introduction to DNA Replication
Students discover how DNA replicates through a PowerPoint lecture. Lesson includes a link to download entire PowerPoint instructional activity. Student understanding is evaluated with review questions.
In this DNA replication worksheet, students review the steps that take place for DNA replication. This worksheet has 9 fill in the blank questions.
