Class Experience

Students will learn where to locate DNA in a plant cell, how to extract it, and know how to write a lab report. 
I've taught Genetics for several years in my Biology class and Forensics class. I would enjoy teaching your child about why it's important to learn about genetics. 
Each lesson has an assignment that must be turned into the instructor either as an attached doc or pic through the classroom.
 3 files available upon enrollment
glue stick, markers scissors glue stick Multi-colored marshmallows, gumdrops, or different color Playdoh (roll four different colored balls into groups of four in the size of a pea) toothpicks (No toothpicks, grab some twigs) 3 strawberries Sandwich size ziplock bag Salt Dawn pure essentials dishwashing liquid works best, COLD 90% isopropyl alcohol (must be refrigerated) Small strainer or funnel with coffee filters measuring spoons measuring cups frozen or fresh strawberry, 2 clear cups or glasses Toothpick
Assessment is based on the completion of required activities: coloring pages, template activity, and lab report. These will be submitted through the classroom. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The use of rubbing alcohol can be dangerous if it enters the eye. I highly suggest using eye protection when doing the DNA extraction experiment. 

Also, some videos are from Youtube. Due to their ads, this may need to be supervised.
