There is a really good simulation that shows the scale of the molecules that make up DNA.

In addition to spending some time on the other sites, I really went through the information on cloning. The thing that I liked the best about it was that the concepts were explained in clear English (without jargon) and the follow-through activity allowed students some real experience. I look forward to using this in my classroom next year.

Technical Remarks:

Although some of the other reviewers mentioned broken links, I did not see any.
Time spent reviewing site: 1.5 hours

Sorry, this link doesn't work but it sounds really interesting. I hope you can find it again and add it.

This will be fun. I saw an other one like this using split peas.
