There are a variety of activities that can be used to teach mitosis/meiosis. I thought the PowerPoint presentations were simple and to the point. All information is included to teach the two cycles. I thought the handout would make a great listening guide with the presentation. Nice addition of the song- I think the students will enjoy having a different learning strategy for the memorization of the phases.
