Genetic Technology Key Word List

Genetic Technology Key Word List

(0)
List of around 50 key words with definitions for the A2 genetic technology unit For example: electrophoresis, DNA polymerase, gene therapy, vector. The words are already matched up so can be given to pupils as a list of definitions to learn, or what I do is cut them up and make into a card sort for revision. The objective of the activity is for pupils to revise key words and identify any misconceptions or unknown vocab needed for the written exam. The resource can easily be adapted once downloaded by adding or removing words from the table to suit different ability groups or syllabuses. Originally made for Cambridge A Level Syllabus but is very similar to the other major exam boards. Enjoy!

It was made for a high ability year 10 GCSE biology class (edexcel igcse) but could easily be used with key stage 3 or A level with slight changes. Suitable for all exam boards teaching DNA topic. I find the results are best if you use strawberry or spinach (i gave the students a choice of which to use).
