Evaluating GMO Perspectives through labeling

This is a unit with several different lessons.  If begins with labelling, includes a useful overview power point on what a GMO is (does not go through the technology), has a second power point on GMO facts and fiction and many resources.  A nice set of sheets that organize critical thinking activities related to GMOs.

K-12 Soil Science Teacher Resources

A nice website to explore on soil science.  Designed for K-12 but could easily be upped in complexity.  Several lesson topics.  When you click one, it opens up to more lessons on that topic!  Check out Soil Conservation as one directly related to the case A Curious Display

Strawberry DNA Extraction directions

Using readily available materials, students can see DNA that they extract from strawberries.  Strawberries have eight sets of chromosomes, making the DNA very plentiful.  Frozen strawberries and 70-90% isopropyl alchohol, salt and colorless dish detergent are used.  To make this an inquiry lab, students could modify the given recipe to see what affects how much DNA can be extracted.

Gel Simulation

Background: Scientists use a technique called gel electrophoresis to look at a DNA fingerprint.  The DNA separates into bands and these bands form different lengths.  Every organism, with the exception of identical twins, has a different DNA fingerprint.

 

Goal: To understand how DNA is separated into a fingerprint by using a chromatography activity to simulate gel electrophoresis.

 

Learning Objectives: Students will…

  • Follow directions to complete a gel electrophoresis simulation
  • Use a color-separation technique to separate individual colors from two sample solution
  • Use the results of the separation to infer whether the sample solutions are identical or not

Intro videos and terminology for GMOs, Transcription, Translation

Activity

Choose how you would like to engage your students in the subject of GMO’s and how that is related to protein production in organisms.  We do not suggest that you give them this entire list!  You should choose the resources that will best fit your students and your learning outcomes for your course. In our session we will consider how you might fit in these items with your curricular goals and to make the learning process accessible for your students, with a focus on the science of GMO’s and not on the controversy of GMO’s.
