DNA

DNA

A KS3 resource, in this instance was delivered to a mixed ability year 8 group. The lesson covers DNA in a good amount of detail, without going into the unneeded complexities of base pairing, the technical naming of structures etc. May be a good resource to revise DNA with low ability KS4 exam groups also. Students will explore the work of Watson & Crick, before considering the use of DNA and prior learning covered on cells which don’t fit the pattern in terms of DNA or chromosomes. Students will visit the idea of mutations, and consider what they are, using a simple letter replacement game (they can design their own after seeing the example (challenge). Finally followed by some past question practice (GCSE AO1)> `This lesson is fully differentiated, with extension and challenge throughout’
