Cell Division. This introductory lesson is geared towards middle school students and lower-level achieving high school students. The PowerPoint contains diagrams, three embedded videos, as well as explanations that will keep your students interested throughout. Your lesson bundle includes a teacher and student version in both PowerPoint and PDF formats.

In order, the lesson covers:
- Fertilization and the start of life

- Cell cycle
- Cell division and DNA
- Genetic material

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
