Mrs. Roberts' biology class learned about DNA replication in a simulation that inolved all students in a hands-on activity. Students had ropes and blocks that represented the 4 chemicals that make up DNA strands which they had to string on their ropes to create the proper DNA strand produced in their DNA replication. Students enjoyed getting out of their desks and interacting with their friends while they learned in a fun and engaging way.
