All you need:

*tooth picks
*towel or plates for the desks

This can be extended by "unzipping" and replicating the DNA...

@Tamara- Great! I hope your students enjoy it! It was cheap to do too...only cost me around 6 for the supplies.

I love this! I do something very similar with elements from the periodic table called "Edible Elements." I use jumbo marshmallows as my nucleus, twizzlers as my electron rings to make them visible, and toothpicks to attach everything.

Ooooh!! Edible elements sounds awesome! I'd love to see pics or a blog post when you do that activity this year!!

It's amazing how similar this is to my edible elements. Here's a link to my edible element post. :)
