Interactive and engaging Google Slides activities for the structure of DNA and historic DNA studies by Scientists.
Your students will love using drag and drop nucleotides to build their DNA molecule! With clear directions and bright imagery, the structure of DNA is brought to life in this interactive digital INB. There are two versions of four of the tasks for easy differentiation to support and challenge your students! Animated answer slides are included so you can ask students for their thoughts before revealing the correct answer. Alternatively, you can easily upload the answers to Google Classroom for students to self-check their work.
The Google Forms Quiz lets you easily check student progress – it’s self grading, so there’s no extra work for you.
