Biotechnology: Can It Help in Making the Desert Green?
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating

This learning video introduces high school students to a topic they would not ordinarily study in school, biotechnology, and to different applications of biotechnology that relate to the main theme of the module - making the desert greener. After reviewing traditional methods used for manipulating plants to produce desired traits, students will learn about the methods of making transgenic plants. Dr. Ziad discusses a real world problem that is critical in his country, Jordan, where much of the land is desert. A prerequisite to this video lesson is some background in biology.

The Case of the Stolen Painting: A Forensic Mystery
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This video will help students, particularly those not in AP-level classes, have a practical application for knowing about the major divisions between plants, particularly about the details of plant anatomy and reproduction. Students will be able to :Identify the major evolutionary innovations that separate plant divisions, and classify plants as belonging to one of those divisions based on phenotypic differences in plants. Classify plants by their pollen dispersal methods using pollen dispersal mapping, and justify the location of a _„ƒcrime scene_„Ž using map analysis. Analyze and present their analysis of banding patterns from DNA fingerprinting done using plants in a forensic context.

Students gain an understanding of the parts of a plant, plant types and how they produce their own food from sunlight through photosynthesis. They also learn about transpiration, the process by which plants release moisture to the atmosphere. With this understanding, students test the effects of photosynthesis and transpiration by growing a plant from seed. They learn how plants play an important part in maintaining a balanced environment in which the living organisms of the Earth survive. This lesson is part of a series of six lessons in which students use their evolving understanding of various environments and the engineering design process, to design and create their own model biodome ecosystems.

*Planning Notes
This is a mixed-genre book, with a poetry strand that parallels information text. One approach to reading it aloud would be to read the poetry and prose during separate sessions, but it seems wiser to take advantage of the humorous verse while making sure that students acquire the substance of the text.
A world map or globe will be useful in indicating other countries where raisins are grown.
Note that the last page contains recipes. These would make a delicious finale to the book. Another idea is to bring a cluster of different kinds of grapes for a grape tasting party. Just make sure you have one of each type for all your students.
Bringing actual raisins in boxes would also provide an excellent prop as well as a reward. These activities could take place later in the day.
Note that the verse that appears on each page is fanciful and fun, but there is also a slight risk that by saying aloud the incorrect information it contains you run the risk of students coming away with misinformation. (For example, the verse asks whether raisins are wrinkled because they are placed in bathtubs.) Simply be careful that the correct information is made clear on each page.

*Planning Notes
This book contains many excellent diagrams that explain the process of plant growth. These diagrams also contain technical words. Because of their number, we do not attempt to preview all of these words at the beginning of the read-aloud. Instead, this lesson plan discusses the new words as each diagram is encountered.
This lesson plan does not include the activities at the end of the book, but any of these would make a good follow-up.
