Title: “
Reebop Genetic Engineering



Grade Level:


9
-
10

Objectives: TSWBAT…


1. Identify
the purpose of genetic engineering
.


2.
Describe the process of genetic engineering
.


Illinois State L
earning Standards:

ILS Stage I

12 A 3



Activity Description:


After a brief review of Mendel’s Laws and Reebop genetics, students are
introduced to the benefit of breeding Reebops with two humps
.

Students are
given a copy of the activity and envelopes c
ontaining chromosomes from one
male and one female Reebop, electricity, and a plasmid. The students then
‘mate’ the Reebops, and are responsible for removing unwanted alleles and
replacing them with a plasmid containing the preferred alleles.


Assessment

Strategies:


Assessment will be based on completion of activity, end of class discussion, and

a portion of

the genetics unit test
.


Rationale:

Students struggle with the

concept of genetic engineering
. The Reebops provide
a physical, hands
-
on experience
of multiple exceptions.
