Biology Lab on DNA Extraction from Wheat Germ
This is one of my favorite labs/activities that I do with my Biology I students. It doesn't take long to do, it uses very simple, household materials, and it works every time! There is no number crunching or data analysis, but just a fun activity that your students will really enjoy.
I have also included a "Teacher Preparation" page with answers to the questions and some additional set up information.
I use this with my high school Biology students, but this activity can easily be done with middle school students.
Enjoy, and have fun teaching!!
