Week 17 DNA , RNA, Proteins


Website

Monday Nov 30

QFD: Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning. Albert Einstein

This weeks learning objective :
HS-LS1-1.
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.

LS1.A: Structure and Function
All cells contain genetic information in the form of DNA molecules. Genes are regions in the DNA that contain the instructions that code for the formation of proteins.

Key Vocabulary:
Transformation
Deoxyribonucleic acid
Nucleotide
Nitrogenous base
Double helix
Pyrimidine
Purine
DNA Replication
DNA polymerase
Adenine
Guanine
Thymine
Cytosine

Today’s performance objective : Students will take Cornell notes on the subject of DNA, DNA replication, chromosomes, genes, and meiosis
1) video clips http://www.sciencechannel.com/tv-shows/cheat-sheet/videos/what-is-dna/
2) txt  code
3) notes

HW: finish all vocabulary for this section from last week and make flash cards to remember the terms
Honors : find an article that explains how mutations occur in living cells

Tuesday Dec 1

QFD: The bird a nest, the spider a web, man friendship.  William BlakE

Essential Questikn of the day: Explain how mutations in the DNA strand can cause a change in the way a gene is translated into a protein

This weeks learning objective :
HS-LS1-1.
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.

Key Vocabulary:
Ribonucleic acid
mRNA
tRNA
rRNA
Transcription
Translation
Codon
Anticodon

Today’s performance objective : students will know and understand mutations by completing a performance assignment

The Effects of Radiation on DNA – The Incredible Hulk

Origins of the Incredible Hulk” (2.17 minutes).
Discussion : While most exposure to radiation will not result in such exaggerated forms, scientists have discovered that radiation exposure does cause mutations.
Discussion mutations can be good or bad. examples of good mutations result in evolution of desirable traits. Results of bad mutations have been linked to some cancers.
“DNA Mutation” (1.21 minutes) DNA mutation can be caused very easily and the resulting change in amino acid sequence
DNA mutation sequence activity
Resources and Materials

Origins of the Incredible Hulk

DNA Mutation
1:21 minute long video that shows how a base pair substitution can cause a mutation.

 

  1. Video clip ..mutations
  2. discussion and research of one type of each
  3. how simular are we ( handout)

 

Wednesday Dec 2

QFD: The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. Elie Wiesel

This weeks learning objective :
HS-LS1-1.
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.

Essential question of the day : Students should know and be able to : explain how codons found in DNA are used to build RNA and finally to build proteins.

Today’s performance objective : Analyze protein synthesis by creating an amino acid from a section of DNA.

  1. Text messages
  2. Codon activity museum
  3. Museum I have an outline of the Modern museum of cells, you will be mapping the process of protein synthesis as you see it fitting into the correct sequence in the museum. Your map will be labeled with all crucial entrances, exits, roadways, and services that might be found within the museum, paying special attention to the protein synthesis process. Your map will be colored, and clearly depict the museum in all of its greatness. Your map will be finished in 15 minutes. What questions do you have?
  4. Students will draw, label, color and explain thei “map” of the process. Be sure that the points of contact are correct, and the processes are happening in the right places within the nucleus or cytoplasm.

PowerPoint 

Thursday Dec 3

QFD: They invented hugs to let people know you love them without saying anything. Bill Keane

This weeks learning objective :

HS-LS1-1. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.

Essential question of the day : Describe the role of mRNA, rRNA (ribosomes) and tRNA during the process of translation.

Today’s performance objective : students will perform a Webquest that illustrates the mechanisms involved in proteins thesis and answer questions correctly

  1. Webquest
  2. quiz

Friday Dec 4

QFD:  If you’re naturally kind, you attract a lot of people you don’t like.
William Feather

This weeks learning objective :
HS-LS1-1.
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.

Essential question of the day : how can DNA be extracted from an individual cell

Today’s performance objective : Students will extract their DNA and analyze the role of DNA in ran bring proteins by performing a lab

  1. DNA extraction lab
