This two slide PowerPoint contains two activities on cloning.
The first is a cut and stick activity on how Dolly the sheep was cloned.
The second looks at the ethics of animal cloning and can be used to start a class discussion on the topic.

Students are shown the 'cannabis facts' and discuss how reliable they think these statements are.
They then are asked if they think cannabis should be legalised or not by a show of hands.
Then they work in pairs and are given a sheet from 'cannabis evidence'. They must use the internet to collect scientific evidence to back up the claim e.g. if cannabis causes mental illness. You may want to give each pair the weblinks on the last slide to help them with this.
The sheets are then stuck up around the class for others to read and a new vote is taken - who has changed their mind and why?
This is for a 100 minute lesson, but there are two tasks which could be split over two 50 min lessons.
