Making DNA

.


These are my 7th Grade Life Science Students

And they are making DNA.

While it is true that their cells are very busy
making the REAL thing - - -

That is NOT the DNA to which I am referring.

No, we cannot see their nucleic DNA
without taking tissue samples and
using an electron microscope - - -
mitochondrial DNA?
Let's not even go there!

Instead I am referring to the paper DNA models

Which they are making to learn the basics of
DNA structure.

Adenine-Thymine
Guanine-Cytosine
Deoxyribose
Phosphate
All in a double helix

Surely you remember that!!!

I loved biology! But I have to say...I didn't remember the basics of DNA structure. :)
