Class Summary - Today we will revisit and talk about DNA replication. We reviewed DNA replication and simplified it. Today we will do an activity to simulate DNA Replication. We will label scissors with a ‘helicase’ label to unwind and cut a paper double helix DNA replication. We will label our fingers polymerase to arrange free floating nucleotides that were cut apart on our tables. We will label glue sticks with ‘ligase’ labels and glued the free nucleotides to the original DNA strand (chromatids) to create 2 identical strands to the original strand.
Homework - None
Objectives - Students will use models to replicate DNA.
