What role does our view of human life play in our attitude towards human cloning? What is embryonic stem cell research? How is stem cell research different from adult cell cloning? Which country will be the first to clone humans? How will different cultures react to the news that a human being has been cloned? Is there an international law banning research into cloning humans?
These are the questions that I want you to look at in today’s lesson. Choose one to research in depth or choose to answer them all.
By the end of today’s lesson your displays should have the following information on them:
- A description of two different methods of cloning animals.
- A description of which body regulates research into cloning in this country.
- The answer to at least one of the questions above.
During the lesson we’ll be filming some responses to these questions and voting on which answer we think is the best.
