Text Tuesday – Biotechnology in North Carolina

Greetings Everyone!

We are 1 day closer to winter break! Today we  read a text from our textbook (truly a rare occasion) about how biotechnology impacts North Carolina. Students worked on a corresponding worksheet that addressed

  • What biotechnology is and what the process looks like
  • The Human Genome Project
  • Three parts of biotechnology including medicine, forestry and agriculture
  • Risks and benefits of biotechnology
  • Four careers that stem from biotechnology in North Carolina

You will need NC28 through NC30 of the North Carolina Edition of Grade 8 Science textbook by McDougal Littell to complete this assignment.

The worksheet can be found here:

Biotechnology Textbook Worksheet – NC 28 to NC 30

Tomorrow we’ll be starting another layered curriculum activity packet that will be due FRIDAY DECEMBER 20th!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Mrs. Barton Signature
