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

Today in Class:
1. Students reviewed your notes – using the text, pp. 60-61 and this Blog
2. Students completed Mitosis WS (front side only)
3. Students began the Mitosis Microscope Station Lab. The emphasis on this lab is to practice matching phases of the Cell Cycle with actual cells undergoing changes with cell division. You should have been referring to your text, pages 60-61, as you and a partner answered questions. This lab will be completed tomorrow.
Homework: No HW – unless you would like to practice and review the Cell Cycle and Mitosis more. Refer to the microphotographs in yesterday’s post, as well as the photos of cell division that are on the “Notes for This Unit” page on this Blog.
***If you would like to watch a ‘friendly’ video that explains the Cell Cycle and Mitosis— these 2 are animated videos, explained slowly, and at grade level:
