Math Resources for Thanksgiving

Mitosis Banner

I have received quite a bit of positive feedback from my Mitosis Puzzle Activity.  Hence, I decided to make another activity on Mitosis.  This is a great activity where students will be constructing a Mitosis banner.  Students will be coloring, cutting, and pasting cell drawings according to their phase.  It is a great way for students to learn the different phases of Mitosis.  In addition, students will be pasting notes about each phase.

I have also included a blank template so that you can decide if you want your students to draw their own cells and write their own notes.

You can hang your students' banners across the room!  At the end of the year, you can take down the banners and easily construct them into a flipbook so that students can take them home.

Color the banners and cell drawings

Cut out the banners and cell drawings

Separate the banners, drawings, and notes into piles

Determine which phase the cell drawings belong

Glue the drawings to each phase

Determine which phase the notes belong

Glue the notes

Fold on the solid line

You will need string to construct the banner

Turn all banners upside down and in reverse order

You will need tape or glue (tape works best)

Tape all of the banners

All done!

You can also construct a flipbook

Staple the pages together to create a flipbook

Time to study!

Mitosis Puzzle Activity

I decided to complete my Mitosis puzzle activity with help from my husband :)

Conclusion: This was a great activity!  My husband even enjoyed the activity.  You can have students work individually or in pairs.  It is a great hands on activity.  After students finish gluing down the puzzle pieces, they will reflect upon their learning.

Mitosis and Meiosis Foldable

I am so excited to show you a mitosis and meiosis wheel foldable that I created for interactive notebooks!  The nice thing is that you don't necessary have to use them in interactive notebooks.  They can be used as handheld studying tools or placed in the notebooks.  The mitosis wheel has three different versions: (1) prometaphase is included, (2) prometaphase is not included, and (3) blank template.  The blank template allows you to have students write in information.  This is great for differentiation!  You can purchase the mitosis or meiosis separately or as a bundle.  I have included the link of the bundle but you can find the others in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

Two-Step Equations Hidden Message Activity / Worksheet

I have just finished a puzzle activity on two-step equations.  This is a fun activity that your students will love!

Students will be solving 20 problems on two-step equations.

After solving the problems, students will cut out the boxes and glue them onto the other page according to their solution.

This is a great activity that can be given individually or in groups of 2-4.

In addition, it is self-assessing in two ways: (1) students know that if they don't see their solution on the page then they need to check their answer and (2) after placing their boxes down, there is a hidden message. If they do not see the message, then they know that they made a mistake. This activity can take 1-2 days (1 day if you are on block schedule and 2 days if you are not on block schedule).
