Graphic Organizer/Worksheet


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.

Reviewer Comments:

This activity is appropriate for students in middle school and early high school. Students will create a 24-card flipbook illustrating the phases of the cell cycle. This resource provides a clear goal, materials needed, and a detailed procedure, but lacks specific assessment. The materials needed are simple and inexpensive, but the lesson reinforces the concepts using a creative strategy. This is a lesson students are sure to enjoy!
