Fishy DNA

Welcome to our Fishy DNA activity page! DNA is the recipe for life, just like you add different ingredients to bake different things, the instructions encoded in your DNA make you who you are. All living organisms have DNA code that makes them unique. In the field of genomics we investigate differences among individuals and populations in their genetic code. To do this, we use computer coding! This activity allows you to try your hand at computer coding to build a fish. Use instructions below to design your fish and share it to our group padlet (virtual post it board)!

Go to one of the khan academy coding links to select your fish template:

Edit lines that have ARROWS <------ to make four changes:

  • Fin Color
  • Eye Color
  • Eye Size
  • Fish Color
Share your fish! 
  • Post to the virtual board on Padlet by saving the image of your fish
