Molecular and Cellular Genetics
If your students are visual learners like mine, this might be a great resource for you. Click on the Molecular and Cellular Genetics Theme, then click Structure of DNA, which will then take you to the http://learn.gentics.utah.edu site which has virtual tours of the following: 1) The Basics, 2) DNA to Protein, 3) Heredity & Traits, and 4) Amazing Cells. I was thinking of projecting this site and showing students the different vitual tours.
For the Cell tour, as you move the mouse around the cell, the different organelles are zoomed in and provides information about what it does and provides a simulation of the organelle in "action".
The Heredity and Traits tour explains and shows easy to understand visuals about heredity and traits and why siblings look similar and different from their parents.
