If you have never taught a lesson using a Powerpoint presentation, you have to give it a try! My students always prefer this to a traditional lecture.

PLEASE NOTE: This PowerPoint is also sold in a bundled package which can be viewed here: Mitosis and Meiosis Complete Unit Plan

This powerpoint is on Mitosis and Meiosis (Cell Growth and Division). It consists of 55 slides that are colorful, informative and visually stimulating. Please download my free preview. The preview consists of the first 9 slides of the presentation with the corresponding notes.

I. Limits to Cell Growth
Why do cells divide? What happens if cells grow too large?

This powerpoint was written with a typical biology I class in mind. It can easily be edited. Middle school teachers may simply want to delete a few of the slides. Honors teachers can easily include a few extra details.

Also included is a set of notes to accompany this powerpoint. It includes a complete set of notes for the teacher, and an outline of the notes for the students. Students will use the outline as the powerpoint is being presented and will fill in the notes as the lesson is being taught.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking.
