The NGSS standards ask us to look at the big picture. These activities ask students: "How do we start as a single cell and end up as a complex organism with millions of specialized cells?"
The answer: Mitosis and Cell Differentiation. This EDITABLE bundle includes everything you need for a unit on Mitosis and Cellular Differentiation. It includes: bellringers, readings, lecture notes, worksheets, a group modeling project, an assessment and an emergency sub plan. All of the materials included in this bundle are sold separately on TpT. Click on the links below to see detailed descriptions of each product included. Enjoy!
