Help me give my students the opportunity to explore their understanding of Human Genetics and the importance of DNA, traits, features, and genetic structures through a hands-on experiment.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
In my Math & Science classroom, We believe in the Power of We; We are One collective responsible for All of Our Education. Since We are One, Our Education is One. We are curious. We ask and answer questions. We don't accept a simple explanations of complex topics. We value research of the "who, what, when, where, how and why". We enjoy learning and exploring. We further our understanding through hands-on, personal experiences. We like to use our senses to make new discoveries, draw conclusions, and research complex topics.
Curiosity fosters Education and Education doesn't have an age limit.
I teach them and they teach me. We are all curious and ready to learn.
Currently, my students are studying the concept "Traits and Reproduction from the Genetics of a Spider Silk". Unfortunately, there are not any hands-on activities or text that explains genetics from a human perspective in the curriculum.
My students are curious about their genetic structures and how it effects their familiar structures.
My students do not like virtual experiments. I will use the DNA lab to further explain the topics of DNA, genes, genetic structure, variation, protein molecules, features, and chromosome. Giving my students the opportunity to complete a hands-on DNA lab, that will bridge the gap between imagination and real world problems.
