DNA Extraction with Kitchen Chemistry

Students extract DNA from green peas. In this DNA extraction lesson plan, students use a blender to chop up peas, they mix them with a little soap, they tenderize them and they mix them with alcohol to see the DNA precipitate through the alcohol. Students explain each step of the process and the role each played in extracting the DNA.

Lesson Planet has been one of the primary ingredients for the mortar I need in order to successfully provide a positive learning environment for my students. It saves me the effort of weeding through the abyss of internet resources available and provides quality resources from qualified and experienced teachers. Thank You!!!
