In this 1-day download, students will be creating a poster of the phases of meiosis for reinforcement using inexpensive household items. This activity can be done as a class (with PowerPoint slides to use during instruction) or in small groups. Detailed activity set-up is included.
This download includes PowerPoint instruction slides, a lab sheet with answers, and the poster templates. PowerPoint slides and worksheets are broken down by subject/day to help with flexibility in teaching. Packet is appropriate for 5th grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade, and homeschool students.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
The files are PowerPoint 2007 and PDFs in a zip file. The PowerPoint slides are compatible with Windows 7/Power Point 2007 or later. Packet is appropriate for 5th grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade, and homeschool students. Each PowerPoint slide set starts with a bell question to activate learning and ends with an exit question to quickly assess students. The slides correspond directly to the packets, and the information that needs to be written down is underlined on the slides. Slides are designed so that all the information does not appear at once and continues by clicking through the program at the appropriate pace.
