These biology homework pages are perfect for extending the cell division unit to help students to use their knowledge of mitosis and meiosis to understand organism life cycles. One page has a mammalian life cycle (polar bears!) and touches on the idea of germline cells and mutagenesis. The second page touches on plant life cycles to introduce students to the idea of alternation of generations! And the third page talks about ant life cycles and introduces the idea of insect haplodiploidy. The goal of covering these ideas is not to give students things to memorize but to help students really apply their knowledge of the cell cycle in new areas of biology they haven't learned about yet! These pages are designed to have meaningful, thought-provoking, and creative questions that are respectful of student time.
