Product Description

[Editable] Get your students thinking about how using the human genome project has both advantages and disadvantages. This activity involves student research, oral presentation, claim-evidence-reasoning skills, and more.

Warning: you will need to be a supplemental resource to help your students as they will begin asking you very interesting questions as they research! These questions are only asked because students are 100% engaged in their learning.

What's included:

- task card with introduction, procedures, and Cornell note-taking space

- rubric

This activity is aligned with the following NGSS (CCSS + AERO) standards:

  • LS3-1 Develop and use a model to describe why structural changes to genes (mutations) located on chromosomes may affect proteins and may result in harmful, beneficial, or neutral effects to the structure and function of the organism.
  • LS4-4 Construct an explanation based on evidence that describes how genetic variations of traits in a population increase some individuals’ probability of surviving and reproducing in a specific environment.
  • LS4-5 Gather and synthesize information about the technologies that have changed the way humans influence the inheritance of desired traits in organisms.

This activity is part of this UNIT BUNDLE: Life on Earth.
