Genetically Modified Organisms


As a high school or undergraduate Biological Sciences teacher, you can use this set of computer-based tools to teach about Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), their genetic make-up and application in agriculture and industry

This lesson plan will explain what GMOs are, describe how they are constructed and will introduce the question of whether GM crops could be one possible mechanism to address food and livelihood security in the face of global climate change.

Thus, the use of this lesson plan allows you to integrate the teaching of a climate science topic with a core topic in Biological Sciences.

Learning Outcome

The tools in this lesson plan will enable students to:

  1. Understand what GMOs are and describe their applications across different fields
  2. Describe how GMOs are created and how they differ from gene-edited organisms
  3. Discuss how GMO crops could be used as a climate adaptation strategy to ensure food and livelihood security
