DNA - Science 9

Elizabeth learned about DNA and as always she went through the lessons in BC Science. Then it was time to get on with some great hands on work. 

First I had Elizabeth create a double helix from this lesson by the University of Utah. This lesson was very well explained including visuals. I think it gave Elizabeth much more clarity on how DNA is constructed.

Next she did this amazing experiment from the Genetics Science Learning Centre. It was about extracting DNA from split peas. The wonderful part is it worked!!

I really want to encourage you to add into your textbook experiments and hands on activities. They really help to solidify concepts and make science come alive! Do you have any DNA based activites that you have done? I would love to hear about them!
