Genetically modified crops

Assessment focuses: AF1, AF2, AF3

Context

While studying inheritance and ethics, pupils researched genetically modified (GM) crops and their possible effects on food production and the environment.

  • The pupils were asked to create either a poster or a PowerPoint presentation that could form the basis of a spoken presentation about the pros and cons of GM crops. No limit was placed on pupils' access to sources of information, but they were required to develop their own structure and present their own conclusions.
