This lesson plan from Karen Mayes guides students in the making of a paper DNA chain. I have each student make a portion, and multiple classes glue their portions together. When it is complete, there is enough to string around the room, in a twisted lattice.

For guidance on building the DNA chain, see the following YouTube video.

I imagine that this could also be used in high school or college Biology classes.
