Once you have taught your genetics unit (including genetic mutations) you may be looking for a meaningful way for your students to apply that knowledge. Look no further! This project is a student favorite year after year, and is sure to bring some empathy and awareness to your classroom.
1. Assign or let your students choose one of the genetic disorders on the list.
2. Let them do research on the pre-selected criteria such as symptoms, cause, treatments, screenings, and more!
3. Have them create a Google Slides presentation (template included!) to share their disorder with the class!
4. Revel in your students' new knowledge! This is one project where all students listen intently to their peers' presentations because the information is so fascinating!
