Lesson 5.3 – Should animals be used in scientific research?

This lesson is intended to prepare students for the virtual cocaine lab that
they will be conducting in the next lesson. Since the virtual cocaine lab is based on experiments utilizing animals, this lesson focuses on the issue of using animals in scientific research. The students will explore the issue through a Structured Academic Controversy (SAC) in which student groups learn about/research different perspectives of the issue and then represent that perspective in a class-wide discussion.
