Understanding Chromosomes

Help me give my students the Carolina BioKits: Chromosome Simulation 10-Station so they can better understand how their chromosomes convey their own traits.

My Students

Our school is a small, close-knit family. We are a community. The campus has all the grade levels, K-12. The older students volunteer to help with younger student activities, and younger students are always in awe of the older students. Students at our school are held to the highest character standards. Our school's main goal is to develop good, quality people. It's what makes us great! Our teachers lead by example and we all love our students. Last year, we lost one of our amazing leaders. He was a teacher who exemplified the standards of excellence and leading by example. He had a phenomenal way of leading students to be their best selves. He had an endless heart of giving of himself to all the students and the faculty.

Students need to learn through hands-on experiences.

Our school would like to honor the memory of our friend by building an outdoor garden.

My Project

Students have many different learning styles. Teachers are tasked with reaching all of the different students' learning styles. The Carolina BioKits: Chromosome Simulation allows for students to receive a kinesthic and visual experience for understanding chromosomes. DNA replication is a difficult concept for students to grasp. 3-dimensional learning tools are an invaluable resource to a science teacher for topics such as these.

Helping students understand and experience natural phenomena is one of the greatest challenges faced by teachers.

It's the challenge that I most enjoy! Students also enjoy learning using the physical models. Please help me to give my students that kind of experience.
