Make a Model of DNA

Clever! Here is a pattern for a 3' segment of the DNA molecule. Individuals color each nucleotide an assigned color. Then they cut out the pattern and attach the pieces to each other. Finally, they locate a partner in the classroom with a 5' piece and work together to construct a section of the double helix. This activating exercise can prepare young biologists to construct longer DNA models at home out of a variety of materials that they choose.
