This is a big bundle with two power points and two graphic organizer foldables plus a free comparison Venn diagram covering cell cycle, mitosis, and meiosis.
Cell Cycle and Mitosis PowerPoint and Foldable:
The powerpoint covers cell cycle, G0, G1, S, G2, and mitosis. There are slides for chromosomes, how mitosis is the driving force behind growth, development, regeneration and asexual reproduction. The power point also presents cancer and other diseases caused by disrupted cell cycles.
The foldable covers cell cycle, G0, G1, S, G2, and mitosis in both animal and plant cells. There are note taking areas for how mitosis is the driving force behind growth, development, regeneration and asexual reproduction. The foldable also covers tumors both benign and malignant (cancer).
Meiosis PowerPoint and Foldable:
This powerpoint and graphic organizer fold out foldable can be taught together. Students will have a short review of mitosis and cover vocabulary specific to meiosis.
Next, the students go over crossing-over using terms such as sister chromatids, homologous chromosomes, synapsis, tetrad, chiasmata. If you teach AP Biology it is great for review.
The detailed meiotic steps also discuss what is happening with the quantity of genetic material.
Both foldables have four files. Two files are for the students. One is modified with fill in the blank style notes to accommodate students with IEPs of handwriting challenges. A normal teacher key with red ink and one with black ink for students who require a copy of their teacher's notes.
