Class Experience

At the end of this class students should be able to name the components that make up DNA and understand how they fit together.  Student should also be able to pair the nitrogen bases that contain genetic instructions.  Student should also be able to give a brief definition of RNA and understand its role in helping with DNA replication.
I taught this subject and did this activity with my sons in our homeschooling.  
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
This is an activity I have included at the end to show how this project was completed.  I was leaving this as an activity to complete after class was over for review and to add more sensory learning to this lesson.  This would add the senses smell, touch, and taste to help solidify learning.
We will be using a video I created in my kitchen where I make an edible model of DNA of an activity I created using Starbursts, Twizzlers, and toothpicks to create a model of DNA
