I think most people really underestimate how important it is to have healthy DNA, that is to keep your DNA seqence from being broken or changed. But right now I am just trying to get the concept of DNA structure across to my students. So far we have learned that DNA is made from nucleotide monomers (a sugar, phosphate, and a base). These nucleotide monomers come together to make the DNA double helix. Here are some pictures of students as we discussed DNA. We also make a 3-D foldable of DNA and I will try to get that picture up soon.
