Strategies to increase food production Genetically modified crops
Starter What issues are we attempting to tackle with GM foods? Hunger Disease Over population
Learning Outcomes To research genetic modification of crops to find out what it is, and the arguments for and against it. To present findings in a written report, and critically evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of this strategy of increasing food production..
You will work in pairs to research the genetic modification of crops. Research task You should allocate research tasks: What is genetic modification of crops Examples of GM crops and growing regions Arguments for GM (advantages) Arguments against GM (disadvantages)
Your task is to produce a written report based on the research you did with your partner. Research report Success criteria: Explain what GM crops are Give examples of crops and growing regions Describe the advantages of GM crops Describe the disadvantages of GM crops Include specific facts and figures You need to conclude whether or not GM crops are good or bad in terms of increasing food supply Include some images/maps/graphs to illustrate your points Due: Monday 3 rd March
