Hands-on Activity: DNA Extraction Lab
During Science some of the children have been learning about DNA.
DNA (short for deoxyribonucleic acid) is the single most important molecule
in living cells.
DNA is contained in the chromosomes, which are located inside the nucleus of a cell.
The children took part in a hands-on activity looking at what DNA looks like using a banana.
The activity followed on with an exercise discussing how the DNA looked like.
