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.
