Are you a teacher looking for an easy-to-use yet comprehensive educational resource to help plan your science lessons? Look no further! Our Free Science Resources for Teachers provides you with a hassle-free way to provide engaging lessons to your students.
These Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero lesson plans developed by Mindfuel.ca (Alberta Science Foundation) make it easy for you to implement hands-on student activities in the classroom based on the genetic engineering concepts presented in Amino Labs kits and the Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero Guide book.
Each lesson guide includes a variety of student activities: hands-on experiments, virtual simulators, individual and group assignments, PowerPoint presentations, worksheets, and assessments with accompanying teacher keys. The Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero book and experiment kits for chapters 3 and 4 are quite important for these lessons! Lessons 1 and 2 do not require any Amino Labs kit - you can use your own materials from the classroom.
This 4 part lesson guide covers:
- Discover DNA,
- Genetic Engineering & Lab safety
- Growing and understanding E. Coli cells with a hands-on experiment using the Canvas kit
- Genetic Engineering E. Coli cells with DNA Plasmids with a hands-on experiment using the Engineer-it kit
