Experiencing and learning about DNA can be done in the classroom on the computer!
CyberEd DNA The Molecule of Life is an excellent multimedia CD-ROM. This software uses interactive exercises, movies, animations and tests to help students understand DNA concepts. All frames of the CD presentation have quality narration.
The CD can be used as a sequential tutorial/lesson in which students are guided in a "discovery mode", or it can be used by accessing individual interactive lessons. Here are some examples from the CD-ROM:
Text supplements are also provided with these CDs, which can serve as an excellent "tour guide" for the CD presentation.
Note that there are several other related CD-ROMs that are also very interesting and useful for the Cells and Genetics units. The complete CyberEd biology CD-ROM product list is available here.
