For this biology word search worksheet, student search for 27 terms related to DNA and RNA. They check off the terms that are included in a word bank at the bottom of the page. Terms include double helix, codon, and mutations.
Students explore the concepts of DNA and RNA. Students discuss the basic principles of DNA and its transcription into RNA and then translation into amino acids. Students work in groups, following given directions, to discover a code and its translation. They discover mutations and how they can occur.
In this RNA and gene expression learning exercise, students match the letter of the description that best matches the term as it relates to gene expression. Students also answer questions as it relates to the process of transcription and translation.
In this DNA worksheet, student identify the three different kinds of RNA and review vocabulary words associated with DNA and RNA. This worksheet has 13 fill in the blank and 12 matching questions.
Students explain how cells reproduce. In this biology lesson, students transcribe and translate a gene. They discuss and compare their answers in class.
This is a polished presentation of the nucleic acids. It is unique in that it examines both the genetic material and the energy molecules. Usually these are addressed separately even though they are both nucleic acids. This approach is most appropriate for your biochemistry buffs. It is straightforward, educational, and contains explanatory diagrams. It earns an A+!
A continuous cascade of information comes through this PowerPoint on biotechnology. The topic is defined, a history is presented, and basic genetic engineering techniques are explained. The topic is covered in an objective manner, although the final slide assigns viewers to develop an argument for or against human cloning. The material is occasionally supplemented with photos or graphics, but they are somewhat grainy. This could possibly be of use for your high school or college biotechnology unit.
Learners create models of DNA and RNA using string and beads. They use beads representing the four nitrogenous bases of DNA to create a portion of a strand of DNA, and it's corresponding RNA. Then, students examine how many of their strands it would take to represent and actual strand of DNA and the number of bases it has.
Future geneticists use base pairing rules to build DNA and RNA polypeptide strands, and then explain both transcription and translation. Although the chains themselves are a little blurry, there is plenty of room in them for learners to fill in the missing complimentary base. This exercise provides essential practice when your class is studying molecular biology.
In this molecular biology worksheet, students complete 50 multiple choice questions on DNA and RNA replication, translation and transcription.
Tenth graders study DNA and RNA sequences and transcribe then into amino acids.  In this investigative lesson students research the Internet to find related proteins to amino acids.
In this DNA worksheet, students review the transcription and translation processes. Students label and color the different parts of a DNA strand. This worksheet has 7 fill in the blank questions.
In this DNA worksheet, students read information about DNA and messenger RNA. Then students complete 16 short answer questions and color 2 images.
Students define the key terms that are the structure and function of DNA. In this genetics instructional activity students complete a lab activity in which they construct a model DNA structure.
Fourth graders, in pairs, examine how every cell contains a 'blueprint' coded in DNA molecules. They use a DNA template to determine the m-RNA and t-RNA sequences for protein.
In this DNA worksheet, students review the genetic code, compare the two kinds of RNA, and define mutations. This worksheet has 4 multiple choice, 8 fill in the blank, 1 Venn diagram, and 4 short answer questions.
Students spend the lesson reviewing for their Genetics exam. In groups, they compare and contrast the structures of DNA and RNA and discuss how DNA can cause mutations. To end the lesson, they share their knowledge on the contributions of various scientists to this field.
Students use a DNA strand to identify the component parts. They discuss an RNA molecule, protein fragments, and nucleotides. They explore how the order of nucleotides determines the order of amino acids in proteins.
Students examine protein synthesis and how DNA is transcribed.   In this investigative lesson students play a role in the messenger RNA when it creates nucleotides. 
Tenth graders investigate the chemical composition of DNA and RNA and how they work together to synthesize protein. They discover genetic codes, gene chromosome theory, and how the environment influences our appearance.
