Genetics & DNA Lab Activity Kit
Genetics & DNA Activity Kit
With this modern kit, children investigate inheritance and learn how traits are passed down from their parents. Kids explore dominant and recessive genes and determine how traits will be expressed. They study the biology of reproduction, the components of cells, and how chromosomes are combined and copied. They assemble a model to see the elegant double-stranded helical structure of DNA, then crack the genetic code and find out how nucleotides fit together. As a final practial application (and a favorite activity), kids analyze DNA evidence to identify suspects and solve a crime. This kit includes a 48-page, full color manual detailing the activiites above. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
