Students explore the structure of DNA and build a model. In this DNA lesson plan, students complete a chart with the molecules that make up both DNA and RNA nucleotides. Students draw and color pieces of the molecule such as the hydrogen bonds and the bases. Students construct a model of DNA using plastic pieces to form a double helix and answer questions about the backbone and the bases of DNA.

Being a first year foreign language teacher came with many trials. However, having Lesson Planet has made my job so much easier :). I can always find a few lessons on any given concept I am introducing to my students. The neatest thing is the agility of use the site provides and the search for lessons by grade. I love that! (Especially since I teach 4th - 8th graders.) I need a variety of lessons that meets my students' needs at their level.
