When it comes to exploring the building blocks of life, the folks at Avokiddo have an excellent mobile app. It can help you introduce genetics to students through play. If the idea of teaching genetics, or introducing students to the foundations of genetics isn’t on your list of topics this school year, you’re still in the right place. DNA Play provides students with an open-ended space for creativity and problem solving too!
Now if you’re a regular follower of the blog, you may have seen me feature Avokiddo and their powerful apps for students in the past. I spotlighted DNA Play earlier this year. But today I want to make sure you have a handful of classroom activities too. This list isn’t about the “right way” to use DNA Play in the classroom, but instead features ideas for how to introduce genetics to students this school year.
