The Clone Factory
Science Scope, v28 n8 p40-41 Jul 2005
Have humans been cloned? Is it possible? Immediate interest is sparked when students are asked these questions. In response to their curiosity, the clone factory activity was developed to help them understand the process of cloning. In this activity, students reenact the cloning process, in a very simplified simulation. After completing the process, they will discover what species they have cloned. Students will then research the risks and benefits of cloning, which they summarize in a short report.
