A great way to introduce chromosomes, genes and DNA!

Models are powerful tools for teaching science because they provide useful simplifications of structures and processes, helping to make the unseen seen and the complex simple.

Your students will enjoy learning about the relationship between chromosomes, genes and DNA with our model. First they make their models of maternal and paternal chromosomes and a cell nucleus.

Then they will look at how chromosomes are stored in the nucleus and that they have a copy of each chromosome from their mother and father.

Next, they will look at how chromosomes are made of long strands of DNA that are coiled very tightly around proteins.

Lastly, will next see the relationship between chromosomes and genes. They will see how genes are stored in DNA and look at how chromosomes can carry different versions of a gene. such as for eye color.

The Model Making Kit includes enough materials for students to assemble up to 10 paper models working cooperatively. The comprehensive Teacher Resource Guide included provides illustrated readings, activities, key vocabulary and an assessment, along with teaching opportunities for students to Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend and Evaluate their understanding of the concepts presented.

Models are powerful tools for teaching science because they provide useful simplifications of structures and processes, helping to make the unseen seen and the complex simple.

Based upon the NGSS Standards, students are expected to develop and use models to represent structures, systems and processes, and then provide explanations, make predictions, or investigate possible solutions.

Using the ready-to-use materials provided with each 3-D model set, students first assemble a model to represent a structure or an entire system as an aid to develop questions and explanations. They will then generate data and observations that can be used to make predictions and communicate ideas to others.
