Working with Genes: A Presentation for Children (Key Stages 1 and 2)

3,858 views

Published on

This is a presentation I gave in the Fall of 2008 as part of the Teacher Scientist Network at a grammar school in the UK. The slides were used with both Key Stages 1 and 2, with the audio content (i.e. what I said) varying between the two age groups. For non-UK people, Key Stages 1 and 2 cover ages 5-11. For more info, see my post: http://themindwobbles.wordpress.com/2008/11/07/scientist-meets-small-children-and-doesnt-stop-talking-and-listening-all-day/
And for notes on each slide, see http://themindwobbles.wordpress.com/2009/05/20/slides-and-notes-available-on-working-with-genes-presentation-for-kids/

  • KS1 and KS2: These are Maine Coons, a particular breed of cat. Has anyone heard of “genes” before? Genes store the information that makes each one of us different. Eye color, shoe size, hair color... Sometimes, there can be a change in a gene that is “good”: that allows a cat to run faster, or a dog to smell better Sometimes that change can cause problems: some diseases are caused by mistakes in genes Cats have been around for 1000s of years. They were domesticated by us. How do we get domestic animals? What does domestic mean? We can breed animals we like the most together New ways of doing this are around now, which I&apos;ll talk about later KS2: How do you know it is the right thing to do? (Irish setters – epilepsy http://www.canadasguidetodogs.com/setterirish.htm, laborador retrievers – hip problems, “mutts” - can be healthier) In short: remember to think for yourself, and learn before reaching a decision
