Product Description

I searched for a lab or hands-on activity on genetic engineering that would make the process less abstract, and more understandable to my students. I wasn't able to find what I wanted, so I wrote it!

This product includes:

  • Background information on the process of genetic engineering, both in the form of a webquest and reading.
  • Links to related video clips and news articles.
  • A hands-on lab activity where students simulate finding a gene in DNA, cutting it with a restriction enzyme, and inserting it into a bacterial plasmid.
  • Summary assessment questions.

After completing this activity, students will understand genetic engineering.

I like to follow up on this activity with an additional reading of current events, and then writing a position paper, using this product.
