Pique student curiosity about the nature of cellular division with this lesson that brings up the contemporary issue of cancer. Almost all students can relate to the issue, and this lesson starts to explain the basis of it.
This purchase includes a 30 slide PowerPoint presentation with graphics and scaffolded notes handout for students. After taking notes, students can apply the information by creating a flip book that illustrates mitosis. Those Instructions are included. This lesson works well in one ninety minute class period or two forty minute ones.
My favorite part of the lesson is helping students gain a basic understanding of a health issue that they have heard of.
