Initiation: (on your own sheet of paper). What do you know about DNA? Have you ever seen DNA being used on TV or in movies? Why do you think it is important to study DNA?. Key Points Nucleotides are the building blocks of DNA.
What do you know about DNA?
Have you ever seen DNA being used on TV or in movies?
Why do you think it is important to study DNA?
DNA is made of four types of nucleotides; Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine, and Guanine.
Each nucleotide binds specifically with another nucleotide. Adenine binds to Thymine and Cytosine binds to Guanine.
Your table will be responsible for building part of the hemoglobin DNA strand.
Identify your sequence of DNA.
Assign colors to specific nucleotides
Example: red = thymine
3. Build your DNA!
Look at this single stranded segment of hemoglobin DNA…
