This 8 page reading packet teaches the stages of the cell cycle and mitosis. Interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, and the basics of cancer. The packet is filled with visuals to better aid comprehension and also comes with a student worksheet for students to complete as they read along.
I will use this handout on days where I may have a substitute teacher or on days when I simply want to introduce the students to mitosis prior to class lecture.
