Videos on youtube are great to use. This particular one has excellent illustrations and animations that shoudl greatly help a student understand the biology of DNA.

Very nice video on DNA! I like how it is kept simple but explains all of the important details.

Stated Clearly produces WONDERFUL short videos on a wide range of scientific topics. My kids are hooked to them, and they would make an excellent addition to a classroom! I am thoroughly impressed with the Stated Clearly team - DEFINATELY check this and other videos out!
