This mutation-themed card-sort consists of 27 cards that students arrange into five different mutation categories. The mutation categories are frameshift-addition, frameshift-deletion, missense mutation, nonsense mutation and silent mutation.

Card-sorts are terrific hands-on activities that promote collaboration and discussion among students. They work nicely as review material for a test or as a means to confirm your students' degree of understanding.

This product pairs well with the sentence "mutations" used in the FREE Mutations Scrabble Challenge activity found in my store.

Minimal preparation! These cards are sized for borderless printing. That means no trimming and less time spent preparing the activity.


♦ 4 graphics used on the cards (for personal use only).

♦ 10 additional mutations in an EDITABLE Word document that can be used on tests or in practice exercises.


What's Included:

☑ 27 Card Sort with 5 Categories

☑ Student Answer Sheet

☑ Teacher Answer Key

☑ 4 Graphic Files Used in Card Sort - Personal Use Only
