A Peek Inside

We are pleased to share some examples of what you can find in our DNA for DInner curriculum.

  • Who's in your Family
  • This hands-on activity from Lesson 1 explores plant diversity and how fruits and vegetables are related to one another. Participants are given mystery produce and puzzle pieces in paper bags. They first describe to other participants to help them guess what is in their bag.  After all produce has been identified, each person must try to find their 'relative' in the group. The puzzle-piece cards in their bags will help them in their search.
  • Genomic Puzzle
    • In this paper activity from Lesson 2, participants try their hand at at reconstructing a genome by using puzzle pieces. Each brightly-colored puzzle piece is a fragment that must be set in the right place.
