Let your students independently explore protein synthesis with this guided practice. One of my first attempts in flipped classroom style of learning, and I’m happy to report that it was a great success and to share this resource!
This resource is great for early finishers or for differentiated reteaching, since the worksheet provides both explanation and practice
Students will move through a simple step by step process covering first DNA to mRNA, then mRNA to tRNA. They will practice using the codon chart alone to decipher codons, and then finally students will put it all together to complete full diagrams.
Who is this resource for?
