    Project
    Students will act out the process of transcription and translation using a physical model to help build a kinesthetic and visual memory of protein synthesis.

  • Class Activity
    Protein Synthesis Activity - Building Sentences
    Published by NGSS Life Science. Lesson Plan (PDF)

    Lesson Plan (DOCX) with Membership
     
    Activity
    Students will simulate transcription and translation by building a sentence “polypeptide” from words “amino acids”. Great kinesthetic and visual activity to introduce protein synthesis. All materials required for the activity are included for easy implementation.
