Intended for 7th grade life science students, this lesson plan leads students to create their own model of the structure of DNA. The lesson includes two excellent online resources and a clear procedure, although it is unlikely the activity would take 4.5 hours of instructional time (as written) in many classrooms. This lesson could also benefit from additional teacher background information, as well as some sort of assessment.
