Students are introduced to the genetic research and technologies associated with agriculture while they perform Punnett square activities and create a model of a DNA molecule. As students learn about strawberries and cotton, they are provided with the scientific principles associated with genetics and are encouraged to use their knowledge to think critically and freely about the viability and ethics associated with biotechnology. Aligned to the Content Standards for California Public Schools.
