1. Chromosomes , DNA, and genes worked to build a human body. Chromosomes are spirals inside DNA and genes are the segments of DNA.

2. The licorice are sugar/phosphate backbone, the marshmallows are bases and the toothpicks are bonds between bases and backbone. The green marshmallow is representing Guanine, pink marshmallow represents Cytosine, yellow marshmallow represents Adenine, orange marshmallow represents Thymine.
