Find the DNA in a Banana: Scientific American. Easy to do using household items. The Bringing Science Home series is awesome for kids and adults.

Find the DNA in a Banana: Scientific American; Extract DNA from the banana at home and other experiments!

DNA crime scene investigation. Each group is given a long paper strip of DNA, a 3-page story of the missing necklace and directions on how to fingerprint and sequence their DNA. Scissors act as the restriction enzyme, cutting the DNA between every CCGG into varied length segments. As the segments are pasted into the corresponding rows on the sequencing board (imitating gel electrophoresis), the DNA fingerprint of each suspect will emerge. So, who stole the necklace?

Teach DNA mutations using rice cereal treats. This lesson will allow your students to see how DNA mutations can impact a protein. The students will be asked to take a strand of DNA and use it to make rice cereal treats based on their groups individual strand. Each strand codes for a different variation of the recipe (representing DNA mutations). $

DNA Task Cards. These really helped my kids learn about DNA, particularly its structure.

DNA Task Cards

DNA Task Cards is a set of 23 DNA related task cards that make up a total of 21 stations. The topics are focused on the structure and function of DNA, as well as some other relevant information, including: Nucleotides Nitrogen Base Pairs Chargaff's Rule

Admit it, you’ve always wondered “How in the heck can I *see* my own DNA by using commonly found household items?”. Well, you’re in luck because there’s a tutorial for that.

Here's How to Extra Your own DNA [video]

Extract Your DNA: Ever wish you could see the strands of genetic material that make you. You can, and there's no fancy lab equipment required. In this NOVA video short, learn how to extract your own DNA using just a few common household items.
