 As an entry task, review the elicitation video watched in Lesson 1-1:


  • What was in your "L" column?
  • Were there items in you "W" column that didn't get answered? What were they? 
  1. Print one of each of the 6 articles listed in the Materials section. 
  2. Divide students into 6 groups and give each group one of the printed articles. Explain to students that their group must think of a way to present the information in their article to the class (you could have the share-out either the next day or later in the period depending on the resources used).
  3. Encourage students to be creative. If computers are readily available, student could create a PowerPoint to share the next day. Other options could be to have students develop a skit or game to teach the information to the class.
  4. As groups present, have remaining students take notes on the Biotech Jigsaw Notes sheet.

  1. What is Biotechnology?
  2. Where Did Biotechnology Begin?
