Grades 5-12: This kit enables students to discover the structure of a DNA molecule by joining 24 magnetic, preassembled nucleotides following the correct base pairing.
GENETICS & MOLECULAR BIOLOGY (Grades 5-12)
This kit enables students to discover the structure of a DNA molecule by putting together 24 magnetic, preassembled nucleotides following the correct base pairing. Joining the nucleotides helps students feel the strength of the hydrogen bonds, view the double helix nature of the resulting molecule, and recognize different chemical compounds that comprise DNA. The kit includes nucleotides to build 3 DNA molecules, as well as two excellent DVDs to further expand the topic. Use this kit on its own, or with the activity guides from the "Downloads" section below.
- 18 Thymine
- 18 Adenine
- 18 Guanine
- 18 Cytosine
- 3 round DNA molecule model stands
- 6 mini “Toobers”
- 3 black plastic helix guides
- “DNA: The Secret of Life”
- “Ghost in your Genes”
- CD: DNA Discovery Kit (includes lesson plans & teaching ideas)
- 1 model booklet
- 1 lab notebook
