Sub Plan - DNA Jewelry

strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/msb/public_html/modules/book/book.module on line 559.

Summary
Students create DNA models from beads and wire that may be used as earrings, pendants, Christmas ornaments, and/or key chain pulls. This project is simple enough that a good substitute could lead the students through it since the content should be taught beforehand. More importantly, this is just one of many possible 3D DNA models you could have your students build. Be creative! Use gumdrops, Styrofoam, marshmallows, Legos, grapes, wood, aluminum cans, etc. Better yet, have your students design a model independently.

Objectives
Reinforce student understanding of the general structure of DNA and base pairing rules.
