Critical Thinking and Collaboration

Critical Thinking and Collaboration 1 thumbnail109243
Students in Shoreham-Wading River High School’s Living Environment course worked through breakout boxes, creating 3-D models of the DNA double helix for a DNA structure and function lesson. The students, under the guidance of science teacher Dana Schaefer, also created “mitosis cookies,” that were used as a model and an assessment on the stages of mitosis. The lesson involved students randomly choosing two stages of mitosis out of a hat and representing the chromosomes and other cellular features using sprinkles and frosting.
