PEP Class studies DNA.


Ms. Julie from the Colfax County Extension Office came to talk to Mrs. Cropp and Mrs. Kabes PEP class 4 times about DNA. The students were able to make strands of DNA with licorice, marshmallows, and toothpicks, they were able to remove DNA from strawberries, and they were able to find their own fingerprints. The students thought they were detectives when they were able to find their fingerprints with cocoa powder. We can’t wait to have Ms. Julie back for our next lesson!
