GMO a go go- No No

We have been learning about GMO’s. There is really such a scary aura around GMO’s, but why?. I felt it was important to learn some facts about them and their political implications too. So what better way to get more mature and educated about GMO’s, than to watch this incredible cartoon!

Then we read this incredible article about Vernon Brown, who is fighting a losing battle against Monsanto about their franken-soy bean seeds. He had some accidentally pop up on his farm and is being charged with patent violations. Students had to write some reflections on this article and turn them in (Yay! Garden homework!).

I was really impressed with their reflections on this case- some thoughtful thinking in the 6th grade!
