Central Dogma: DNA Extraction

After reviewing the Unit 4 final exams, it was evident students need additional practice writing scientific procedures.  Today, students were tasked with watching a short video of DNA extraction from a strawberry, writing a procedure for the experiment, and then working with their table partner to complete the experiment. By having to follow their own procedure, the concept of writing a procedure in enough detail for someone else to follow it was reinforced.  Students will use the procedures they wrote today to help them write a related procedure tomorrow.  Click here for today’s lesson and review the strawberry DNA extraction video below.
