Central Dogma: Molecular Bonds

After spending the first half of class reviewing the DNA base pairing worksheet from Tuesday, we moved ahead with a survey of molecular bonds.  We focused on covalent and hydrogen bonds, with water molecules as our model molecules.  Students used the molecular modeling kits to model the interactions of water molecules at different temperatures before moving on to modeling the interactions of DNA nucleotides.  The lesson can be downloaded here.
