Mitosis flip book

by Jamie Lovitt
This is a very cool assignment that helps the students "see" the phases of mitosis (and the larger cell cycle). It is project based, which helps with classroom management! The essence of the flip book is that the students draw the changes happening very slowly on the different pages of the book, so that when the pages are flipped through, the Cell Cycle happens seamlessly! The students love it.
