Forensic Files: A DNA Dilemma

Seventh-graders come in to science class to find a file on their desks detailing a crime to be solved! As a demonstration, you simulate the restriction of DNA samples and separate them by electrophoresis. From the gel, learners can determine the culprit. The procedures assume that you are familiar with restriction enzyme digestion and gel electrophoresis; details are left out. Unfortunately, what is contained in the fictitious crime is not provided either.

My students have had many opportunities to extend their learning by engaging in extra practice activities that I found through Lesson Planet. It's much easier to differentiate instruction because I can pull together various levels of the same skill. Thanks for making my life a little less hectic.
