The fifth grade class has been working on Research-Based Argument writing. As we were inquiring into genetics, we learned about genetically modified organisms and choose this as our research topic. We read articles on both sides of the issue and then decided which one we agreed with. All students felt that food with GMOs should be labeled. Individually they wrote letters to the Food and Drug Administration stating their reasoning. Then while diving deeper into the debate over the labeling of GMOs, our class felt compelled to piece together our research and create a video to share their findings with the world.
