GMO Soybean Experiment
The GMO Soybean Experiment is an 8 Week lesson unit. Students explore how the world population is increasing and demand for food is increasing. Likewise, farmer’s need crops that are resistant to pests, diseases, environmental conditions, chemical treatment, or production of a certain nutrient. In order to produce more yields, genetically modified seeds are helping farmers to increase yield and money and in return produce more feed for livestock. The in-depth unit includes assessments, documentation, presentations, rubrics, lesson plans and worksheets for the GMO Soybean Experiment.
