Class Experience

-DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid and is made up of molecules called nucleotides. Each nucleotide contains a phosphate group, a sugar group and a nitrogen base. The four types of nitrogen bases are adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine. The order of these bases is what determines the DNA’s instructions, or genetic code.
-Practice being in a lab with others (pacing)
Mrs. Collins is a science teacher that loves to use hands-on labs, especially edible ones to help students remember important science concepts.
