My Structure of DNA Doodle Notes are the perfect way for your learners to visualize the structure of DNA!

Zooming in on a cell, they’ll see how the nucleus contains chromosomes, and that these are made of coiled DNA, with its double helix structure and individual nucleotides. Giving them the “big picture” helps them understand how each part links together. They’ll also look at the scientists who helped uncover the structure of DNA, describing and doodling each DNA discovery! Scaffolded and open response versions are included for easy differentiation.

My Doodle Notes are low prep – just print and go! There is a completed example to model the Doodle Notes for your students or let them check their answers.

Content covered:

  • Location of DNA
  • Structure of DNA – components of a nucleotide, complementary base pairs, bonding, double helix
