Module 7 – Cellular Reproduction and DNA


Extracting DNA from Peas

We had a hard time seeing each of the phases under the Mitosis Onion root.  Here is a good article with photos for each stages, if you are having trouble.    Mitosis Onion Root

Semester Exam  (2008 only)

The last day of co-op before the Christmas break was filled up with the semester exam.  We only got through Module 8; therefore, I only used 1.5 of the quarter exams given in the solutions book .  The week before the test, we played games to answer questions.  Some of the questions I used for the games, came directly off the exam.

The game we played was ping-pong darts. :) There were three groups of questions, I wrote on index cards.  Easy, Medium, and Hard.  If the student threw the ping-pong ball and it landed in the outside area, a hard question was given.  Moving towards the center, the questions got easier.  Sneaky, I know. :) Prizes were handed out to the winners.   The students had a lot of fun with this.
