Title: Meiosis vs Mitosis

PLANNING:
Topic: Identifying Asexual and Sexual Cell Reproduction
Time: 2 days 50 minute session

Class: 7
th
Grade General Science (resource/SPED)

Content Standards addressed:
Content Standard: Science
Conceptual Strand 1
All living things are made of cells that perform functions necessary for life.
Guiding Question 1
How are plant and animals cells organized to carry on the processes of life?
GLE 0707.1.4 Illustrate how cell division occurs in sequential stages to maintain the
chromosome number of a species.

Technology Standards addressed:
ISTE
1. Creativity and innovation
Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative
products and processes using technology.
a. Apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes

Materials:
Pen/pencil, Paper, Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mr0oiws9ZvM
Worksheet, PowerPoint, Multimedia Planning Sheet, and Holt Technology.
Technology will be integrated in the introduction through showing a video and with the
creation of a PowerPoint Presentation on mitosis.

Objectives: Blooms Taxonomy: Assessment:
1. The student will be
able to identify
specific phases of
mitosis and meiosis
during cellular
reproduction

Knowledge The student will have to correctly
identify each step according to
the rubric
2. The student will construct
a tutorial on the specific
phases of mitosis and
meiosis during cellular
reproduction
Application The student will have to correctly
identify how each phase develops
so that the cell reproduces.
3. The student will discuss and
analyze the differences
between mitosis and meiosis

Comprehension and Analyze The students will develop a end
of tutorial quiz along with a
comparison chart


TEACHING:
Motivation:
Problem Statement: One of your classmates tells you they are having problems understanding
Mitosis (asexual) and Meioses (sexual) reproduction in cells. They asked if you could help them
with the basics. They need a system to understand the steps of mitosis and what mitosis looks
like in each stage. The best way to assist them is through creating a tutorial utilizing PowerPoint
to assist with understanding of Mitosis and Meioses.


Teacher Procedures: Student Procedures:
Prior to the Computer
1. The lesson will begin with two words on
the board haploid and diploid. I will then
lead a discussion on the differences in
these words. (3 minutes)
2. We will then watch a film on Mitosis and
Meiosis and discuss the film (10 minutes)
3. I will steer the student into using an
acronym for remember the steps. Using
Pretty please my dear aunt sally. As an
example. (5 minutes)
4. Will review the steps for Mitosis ad
Meioses and necessary vocabulary that will
be needed to relay the concept of asexual
and sexual cell reproduction. (10 minutes)
5. I will then pose a questions to the students,
If they had to explain cell reproduction to
someone else could they complete the task
and how they would prepare their
explanation. (3 minutes) (closure)

End of Day 1

Beginning Day 2
6. I will review what had been discussed
the day before. (5 minutes)
7. I will present the problem statement to
the students. (2 minutes)
1. The students will participate in a
discussion identifying the differences
in haploid and diploid. (3 minutes)
2. The students will then work in pairs to
create an acronym for Mitoses and
Meioses. The students will the
reconvene and discuss their acronyms
(7 minutes)
3. Students will then answer the question
posed to them in a summary. This
information will be used as a base for
the tutorial. (14 minutes)

End of Day 1











4. Students will complete a multimedia
sheet for their tutorial. (10 minutes)
5. If there are not available computers
students will complete the Direct
Reader worksheet utilizing their
textbook. ( time will vary while
students are waiting for an available
computer)




At the Computer
1. I will review students work and provide
encouragement while working on tutorial.
2. I will remind the students to compare their
work to the rubric.



1. The student will complete their
presentation though using the PowerPoint
Program (20 minutes)



After the Computer
1. I will remind the students to compare their
work to the rubric.
2.

1. The student will review their presentation
and compare it to the rubric. (3 minutes)
2. The student will analyze their project and
complete a self-critique of the
presentation. (10 minutes)


Reflection & Transfer:
Students will write a short summary of their experience working on this project and if it
helped them to understand cell reproduction through making the PowerPoint.
