Product Details

You have described it as a “twisted ladder” or a “double helix.” These descriptions are very difficult for students to understand and visualize. Now your students can build their own DNA model and twist it themselves! After building the basic structure, students can model DNA replication, transcription and translation. Designed for twelve working groups of students. Kit contains more than 2,700 pop beads. Additional pop beads can be purchased separately.

Super Value Kit is complete for students to work individually or in groups. All materials are reusable.


Materials Included in Kit:
Plastic connectors, 400
Pop beads, blue, 150
Pop beads, green, 150
Pop beads, orange, 150
Pop beads, pink, 150
Pop beads, red, 800
Pop beads, white, 5-hole, 800
Pop beads, yellow, 150

Performance Expectations

HS-LS1-1. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins, which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.
HS-LS3-1. Ask questions to clarify relationships about the role of DNA and chromosomes in coding the instructions for characteristic traits passed from parents to offspring.
MS-LS3-1. Develop and use a model to describe why structural changes to genes (mutations) located on chromosomes may affect proteins and may result in harmful, beneficial, or neutral effects to the structure and function of the organism.
