This DNA scavenger hunt activity is a great way for students to simulate what happens to Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) and Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) during transcription and translation. Prior to completing the DNA scavenger hunt activity you should review DNA, RNA, transcription, translation, and base pairing. This activity should take approximately 50 minutes to complete.
Using gummy bears to teach genetics! This would be much faster than growing Mendel's sweet peas! Not to mention, super cute and fun! Will have to bookmark this so I can use it when we cover dominant and recessive genes!
