Teacher's Lesson Guides

+

With NGSS and Alberta curriculum alignment, these lesson guides developed by Mindfuel.ca (Alberta Science Foundation) make it easy for educators to implement hands-on student activities in the classroom based on the genetic engineering concepts presented in Amino Labs kits and their Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero Guide book.

Each lesson guide includes a variety of student activities such as hands-on experiments, virtual simulators, individual and group assignments, powerpoint presentations, worksheets and assessments with accompanying teacher keys. 

This 4 part lesson guide covers:
  1. Discover DNA,
  2. Genetic Engineering & Lab safety, (Free download¬†- teach & practice safe science ‚ėļÔłé)
  3. Growing and understanding E. Coli cells, and
  4. Genetic Engineering E. Coli cells with DNA Plasmids 
as related to Chapters 1-4 of the Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero: The Beginner’s Guide to Programming Bacteria at Home, School & in the Makerspace.

Each of the 4 STEM lessons can be used independently to teach the individual concepts as part of your larger science, genetics, biotechnology module or together to form the Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero Learning Journey. 

If you are new to teaching genetic engineering and biotechnology in the classroom, we recommend our Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero Beginner's guide to programming bacteria as a primer for yourself, and eventually your students. This book is divided into 7 chapters, with the first 4 chapters being directly linked to these lesson guides. More information available here, 

These lesson guides are electronic downloads. A link to the lesson(s) and asset(s) will be sent to you after purchase.
