This demonstration can be used to help learners visualize DNA by lysing (breaking open) bacterial cells on a slide and “stringing up” the DNA with a toothpick in less than one minute.
Learners use a simple process to extract DNA from strawberries.
In this activity, learners investigate the process of osmosis by adding salt to a sealed bag of raw carrots and comparing it to a control.
In this activity related to microbes, learners make slides of cells from an onion skin and Elodea (American or Canadian waterweed) to observe under a microscope.
