The fourth step in the Detective Badge work is to learn about a “Detective Science”. We chose to learn about DNA.
DNA is the unique code each person has so it helps solve crimes because no one’s DNA is the same.
A great resource we used to guide us in this project: http://www.mykidsadventures.com/edible-dna-project/
We went through the resource and saw how DNA affects the different personal traits we each have. Stella and her dad can roll their tongues. Stella and her mom have a similar type of hair.
After discussing traits and watching a Brain Pop video, we made our own edible model of DNA with Red Vines, Marshmallows, Skittles, and toothpicks.
