PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this activity, students read and annotate a text to gather information about human influence on genetic inheritance.

Performance Expectations:

MS-LS4-5 Gather and synthesize information about the technologies that have changed the way humans influence the inheritance of desired traits in organisms.

RST.6-8.1 Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts.

My students read the article "Genetically Modified Food" by Keith R. Schneider and Renee Goodrich Schneider. The article is available at

http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pdffiles/FS/FS08400.pdf

We expanded on the Flavr Savr Tomato and StarLink Corn Incident as students found these especially interesting!

I included a key but expect answers to vary.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions to improve this activity.

Thank you!
