Google Expeditions - AR - Introduction to Genetics - DNA and RNA #Google Expeditions

Google Expeditions - AR - Introduction to Genetics - DNA and RNA #Google Expeditions

This is for any teacher that is introducing genetics to their students. You could also use this to introduce students to parts of a cell. Another use would be an introduction to the different domains of life and an example would be the Domain Eukaryota. There are so many uses for this Google Expeditions AR lesson. If students don't understand about DNA and chromosomes when learning about life and the cell, then they kind have missed the most important part. #GoogleExpeditions

DNA Rap Extreme, Classroom Song Presentation

DNA Rap Extreme, Classroom Song Presentation

his is a DNA RAP VIDEO project that I created so that students can have fun learning with an audio twist. Download the preview for a template so you can customize it. The purchased product is a video file that cannot be customized. This can be used as a unit plan project or as a template for future songs. What is really neat, and what students really like, is that the lyrics move in a wave-like motioin when the video passes over the verse. Students are engaged as they not only listen to but get stuck with the simple lyrics through repetition. A good idea is to have students design their own videos so that at the end of that project deadline, a DVD can be made and students can show proud ownership of their work. Please have fun with this.

Interactive DNA Stations Lab, The Discovery of Heredity

Interactive DNA Stations Lab, The Discovery of Heredity

your students multiple intelligences and includes engaging activities that focuses on the real experiments that took place. This can be used as a stationed lab or practical. However, each segment can be used individually. Students really need the know who and how DNA was discovered. This lesson hits this target to a tee. Furthermore, this intense lesson will embark on a series of experiences that can give your students the perspective of what it was like to actually discover DNA. Specifically students will tranvserve the prominent experiments that actually lead the idea that DNA and not protein was responsbile for heredity continuity. Students will be engaged as they not only take the role of many scientists, but indirectly practice the As you transverse the knowledge and experience of these revolutionary scientists, students will travel to (4) different stations using this highly engaging activity. This lesson will allow students to actually track how DNA was discovered. At each station students will be exposed to a wide spectrum of activities that range from the Fredrick Griffth Experiment (interactive mice activity); Oswald Avery Experiment ( KWL activity as a product of an model activity); Hershey and Chase Experiments (students will actually draw a model of the Hershey and Chase experiment a use a given key to reproduce the experiment); and Structure of DNA activity; students will open doors and see the different scientists responsibled for the discovery of DNA and its structure. This lesson even goes as far as describing the contribution that Rosland Franklin contributed and how Watson and Crick used her data without her permission. I have included the entire expanded lesson plan. You will receive all four lab stations, the entire individual student workpacket, and a student assessment sheet.

Genetics Unit Exam with Answer Key

Genetics Unit Exam with Answer Key

If you are in a hurry to put together a unit exam for Genetics at a 9-12 level, I have saved you the time. This is a Genetics Unit Exam that accomodates to multiple state standards. It is a 36 question exam that represents data-based research. This exam is both valid and reliable and covers the following deep understandings of Genes and Heredity which spans the following areas: Heredity Genes Traits DNA (structure and function) DNA (replication) DNA vs. RNA Protein Synthesis Using the Genetic Code Whats unique about this exam is its cosmetics and structural framework. The exam is designed to take full advantage of visual learners through differentiation. The exam aligns to the multiple intelligences which includes test questions that cover: Multiple Choice Charts and Diagrams True and False Word Bank Using the Genetic code to transcribe and translate base sequences Embedded within the exam is a survey tool that can measure your student's understanding of the content without relying simply on a summative assessment. On the right side of the questions you will see circles that are labeled, E, M, H. E-easy, M-medium, and H-hard. After students answer the questions they will cross out the level of difficulty they felt the quesiton is. This data will help bridge the gap between a reliable and valid assessment. Also, there is qualitiative research regarding anxiety and test taking. Inside the cover you will see a box for students to write down what they are feeling just as the test is about to be handed out. Research has shown that if students do this the class mean will increase 5%.
