Item description

Looking for some quality worksheets on DNA structure/function for your senior biology students?

This resource consists of six handy, printable black-and-white Student Worksheets (PLUS Answer Sheets) that will save teachers valuable lesson preparation time AND help students to understand and/or revise the double-helical structure of DNA and the important processes of DNA replication and protein synthesis. Suited to students in years 10 – 12, DNA Structure, Replication and Protein Synthesis can easily be used as classwork, homework, revision exercises or even tests. It includes a fun word find on the structure of chromosomes and DNA.

DNA Structure, Replication and Protein Synthesis covers:

  • DNA as a polymer made up of nucleotide monomers

  • the three parts of a nucleotide: deoxyribose sugar, phosphate and nitrogen-containing base

  • double-helical structure of DNA

  • features of the DNA molecule, including types of bonds present, packaging and formation of nucleosomes

  • comparing DNA with RNA

  • process of DNA replication

  • comparing the conservative and semi-conservative models of DNA replication

  • protein synthesis: transcription, post-transcription modification (RNA processing) and translation

Along with printable worksheets, a digital (PowerPoint) version of this resource is included here at no extra cost, giving teachers a choice as to which they prefer to use – taking into account the different learning styles of their students.

DNA Structure, Replication and Protein Synthesis is not just about answering questions. Your students will enjoy the ‘active’ nature of the tasks here, requiring them to:

  • analyze diagrams

  • label diagrams

  • color-code

  • add features to diagrams

  • draw diagrams

  • complete a fun word find

DNA Structure, Replication and Protein Synthesis includes an Answer key (PDF) with images in full color that look great on the big screen and can be used to facilitate good class discussion. Answers provided are also highly detailed, so there is no need to research or fact-check here; it’s all been done for you.

I hope you and your students find this product useful and that you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
