The GMO Debate: A stations-based lesson for AP Biology

The Transgenic Crop Debate (Click for links to all stations materials)

What are the pros and cons surrounding GMO crops?

Students must complete station 5 stations (approximately 15 minutes each) to investigate the GMO/Organic food debate. Students should be instructed to pay special attention to the sources of the information and examine these sources for reliability and bias.

Culminating task
  1. What was a misconception you had about GMO foods? About organic foods?
  2. Before this investigation, would you say that you leaned more towards GMOs, organic, or no preference? How about now?
  3. What do you notice about the “facts” you have encountered based on the sources from which they originated?
