November 30th, 2010 | Uncategorized | No comments

I did my activity for 2 different biology sections. I had them make a flip book of the phases of mitosis. However, I did leave a few things out that I changed from the first section to the second section. The first class seemed fairly bored with the activity. They had their pictures of mitosis […]

I went in on Monday morning to teach a lesson on mitosis.
