Now that we have identified that there is a problem with the muscle in the zebrafish, we will investigate this more deeply. What macromolecule makes muscle? How is that protein formed? There must then be something wrong with the protein's form because it is not functioning properly.
Students will be able to sequence the steps of protein synthesis by manipulating a model, observing a demonstration, and completing a flow chart.
Small DNA puzzle pieces
Large, chalkboard model DNA pieces with RNA
3-D model of DNA Protein Synthesis flow chart - for drawing notes
Protein Synthesis flow chart - for writing summary
Protein Synthesis flow chart - teacher page with answers
Any textbook that would refresh the instructor's memory of the steps of protein synthesis.
