Project


Learning targets:




Students will analyze how genetic engineering technologies affect their personal
lives.


Resources:




Textbook
(pages 227
-
242)



Credible Web Sources (SIRS, Sweet Search, etc.)


Requirements:


1.

Students will share aspects of their lives tha
t involve genetic engineering.
Examples

should be based upon research.

These examples will be shared in class
and students will
be given credit for participation.


2.

After generating student/class list, students will create/design a poster showing 5
ways in which genetic engineering affects their lives.

The poster should include:

a.

a

titl
e describing the student.

b.

images

of each of the five examples.

c.

a

description of how each example has been bioengineered
.


3.

Using the poster images, students will describe
:

a.


how each of the 5 examples
has

been genetically engineered to somehow
“improve” their usefulness.

b.

how
each of the 5
examples has

impacted their life.
