These EDITABLE NGSS- aligned slides summarize cellular growth and repair: mitosis, stem cells (pluripotent), specialized cells (unipotent), and cell differentiation (gene regulation and expression). I have uploaded it in a .pptx format so that you can edit and differentiate it for your classroom and students' needs. Enjoy!
NGSS HSLS1-4. Use a model to illustrate the role of cellular division (mitosis) and differentiation in producing and maintaining complex organisms.
NGSS HS-LS1-1: Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.
**Note: this PPT does not include rote memorization of the steps of mitosis (in accordance with NGSS standards)**
