1. Examine how through cell division, cells can become specialized for specific functions.
2. Identify patterns in data.
3. Communicate and defend findings of observations and investigations.
4. Generate scientific questions based on observations, investigations, and research.
5. Use tools and equipment ( and tapes, models, microscopes) appropriate to scientific investigations

Today in Class:
1. We reviewed the phases of the Cell Cycle.
2. Some students made up the worksheet – Mitosis & The Cell Cycle; others studied the Cell Cycle.
3. The classes completed the Cell Cycle & Mitosis Microscope Station Lab.
4. I reviewed and te-taught the Cell Cycle with quite a few students during Lit block and at Lunch. If you could not come (you had Band class), here are a couple of great Mitosis Links to help you learn :

http://www.phschool.com/science/biology_place/labbench/lab3/mitfilm.html This is a short video clip – unlabeled – of mitosis; it is a good video to stop and start and practice with.
Of Course, Cells Alive is Fantastic— which i asked you to check out earlier this week: http://cellsalive.com/mitosis.htm
Homework: Study Notes: Mitosis & the Cell Cycle.
