Meiosis Activity

After presenting on meiosis and mitosis I had my students create foldables of five assessed vocabulary terms. I gave them 900 seconds to complete the assignment. I use seconds to get the students involved with math and it allows me to easily adjust the time without the students noticing. I made the lesson a competition and offered a homework pass to the most creative and correct foldables. Students had to include a picture with five colors, the definition, example and pronunciation.  Their work was high quality and done quickly since they were judged after 15 minutes.

  1. Hi!
    I’m a Biology teacher and have just started blogging. I’ve just stumbled on your blog and it looks great. I’ve just stared using foldables with my classes. I find they add a bit more interest than a normal worksheet. I love the way you have used them here.
