PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This worksheet takes the topic of genetic engineering and applies it to the popular series, The Hunger Games! The students are challenged to be the new Head Game Maker, and they must genetically engineer a palm tree to help Katniss survive. Several examples that my students came up with include:

-The palm tree could contain aloe to help Katniss with burns/scrapes.
-The leaves could change color if danger is near.
-The tree trunk could be hollow, and Katniss could use it for shelter or protection.
-The leaves could be extra strong and sturdy to serve as a shield.

My students absolutely loved this warm up, but it would also work well as an exit ticket or a small homework assignment. Enjoy!
