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. 
No homework
DNA CANDY MODEL PROJECT MATERIALS NEEDED: Twizzlers (represent the backbone consisting of sugars and phosphates) Toothpicks Soft Candy (Something that comes in 4 colors but is all the same type of candy to represent the A, T, C, G nucleotides) 4 cups to separate candies by color Paper Coloring pencils or markers
Fun informal assessment provided on Quizizz at the end for the ones interested. 
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
