Comparing Mitosis and Meiosis

In this minds-on analysis and discussion activity, students review mitosis and meiosis as they compare and contrast these two types of cell division. The Teacher Notes for this activity include an optional mitosis and meiosis card sort for additional review.

The Student Handout is available in the first two attached files and as a Google doc designed for use in online instruction and distance learning. The Teacher Notes, available in the last two attached files, provide instructional suggestions and background information.
