Apologia Biology: Module 7, Cellular Reproduction and DNA

It’s hard to believe that we’re almost halfway through this course!   Hang in there, it won’t be long until we get to the dissections.  I’m sure you’re all looking forward to the pictures!

A big thanks to Applie’s Place for finding that excellent video.  You can also find a fun project for making Play Dough Mitosis over at Applie’s Place.  If you have extra time, why not try extracting your own DNA using this technic:  Extract Your Own DNA!

Just one more thing…Here’s a video on how Vaccinations work to prevent illness.

    LOL I love the swimming mitosis.

    We did the pea DNA extraction last year and this year, but this year it didn’t work very well.

    Great post.
