Station 2:
In one sentence, answer the question
below.
Why does the DNA of a cell replicate
before the cell divides to make a two
new cells?
A cell replicates its DNA before it divides so that
the two new cells EACH get a full set of DNA.
Station 3: Answer the question below in
1 sentence.
All living things have DNA, but not all
living things have the same DNA.
Knowing this, what does the DNA of all
living things have in common?
1

Station 3: Answer the question below in
1 sentence.
All living things have DNA, but not all
living things have the same DNA.
Knowing this, what does the DNA of all
living things have in common?
All living things have the A, T, C, G bases
Station 4:
Answer the question below in 2
sentences.
Why is the shape of DNA described as
a double helix?
(There are two reasons you should
describe. Think about the two words!)

Station 4:
Answer the question below in 2
sentences.
Why is the shape of DNA described as
a double helix?
(There are two reasons you should
describe. Think about the two words!)
It is “double” because there are two sides to the
DNA. It is a “helix” because of its spiral shape.

DNA is in the shape of a ______ ______. The two
sides, or strands, of DNA are ___________ to one
another. The direction of the DNA strands are said to be
________________ because they run in opposite
directions, allowing the bases to bond in the middle
with the backbone on the outside.
