Ms. Neunie from Hallandale FL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

It's in Our DNA

Help me give my students visuals that are meaningful and give life to what they are learning, and K’NEX Education – DNA Replication and Transcription Sets will allow my students to fully grasp the understanding of DNA base pairing.

My Students

My student population is a microcosm of everything beautiful and right in America. My students are special because they represent Haiti, Latin America, Central America, and Russia, just to name a few. Most of my students are bilingual, so English is a second language for them. Teaching and learning can be a challenge for both myself and them. Without reinforcement and differentiated instruction, many concepts get lost in translation.

We are a Title I school in the heart of Hallandale Beach, Florida.

100% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. The total minority enrollment is 94%, and 84% of students are economically disadvantaged.

Learning is the glue that fosters a cohesive environment. It does not matter where we are from, what language(s) we speak; the common goal is to learn, not only to learn but to enjoy and master the content. Our community at one point in time produced the lowest graduation rates in Broward county. Fortunately that statistic is slowly changing and the community continues evolve.

My Project

The DNA Kits will allow explicit, direct, and whole group instruction to take place in the classroom. Students build and learn about phosphate groups, deoxyribose and ribose sugars, hydrogen bonds, codons, nucleotides, DNA structure, transcription and mRNA production, and molecular basis of heredity. The pieces easily unsnap for replication and transcription activities.

The materials support two to three students working as a team, as well as individual learning.

The kits are also aligned to national and state standards.

The build models include: Parent DNA molecule, unwound; Parent DNA model as a flexible double helix; Parent DNA molecule, stand-mounted; Two parent/daughter DNA molecules, unwound; Two parent/daughter DNA molecules, stand-mounted; Large parent/daughter DNA molecule, flexible; and Two mRNA molecules transcribed from DNA molecule.
