Did you know that humans can combine DNA of two or more organisms to create brand new organisms? Did you know that some of the food you eat may come from other organisms that you have no idea about? Next time you eat an orange, think about it. It might not be JUST an orange you are eating!
Without DNA, we wouldn’t be here. It controls all of our physical characteristics, including eye color, hair color, and even the taste buds on our tongues. In this lesson, students will study the structure of DNA by building a 3-dimensional model which they can eat afterwards!
