A powerpoint for the second lesson of the AQA AS level unit 2 Cells arise from other cells.
Includes two worksheets, one for a starter card sort and a worksheet with exam questions. The card sort is already matched up. Answers for the exam questions are on the sheet as well as on the powerpoint.
Powerpoint goes through the stages of mitosis and what happens at each stage to result in genetically identical cells. It also includes information on the importance of spindle fibres and centromeres.
These task cards are a great way for students to improve their skills and knowledge of mitosis and meiosis.
This product contains 24 cards with multiple choice questions about mitosis and meiosis. A recording sheet and an answer key are included. Blank cards are also included for questions to be added, if wanted. The same 24 cards are also available as open ended questions.
This is a resource which meets specification points within the NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy 'Cells' Sow.
Other lessons designed for the new 'Cells' SoW and other new Trilogy Biology and Physics SoW can be found in my TES shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience
This lesson begins by identifying the purpose of mitosis - growth and repair. Pupils will then be given a double-sided worksheet, the first side corresponds to the first 5 mins 51 seconds of the video included in the PowerPoint slide. Pupils will need to watch the video and answer the questions on the sheet, they are in order but for lower ability classes you may want to stop the video and guide pupils through the work. Self-assess this work using the answers provided in the PowerPoint before moving on with the video.
The next part of the video guides pupils through what happens during Mitosis - Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase. Pupils have diagrams of the the processes on the back of their worksheet, they will need to use the video to name the stages and describe what is happening. Self-assess work using the answers that are provided in the PowerPoint.
The next activity, pupils are given real images of a cell going through mitosis and descriptions of the stages, they need to cut and stick the stages and the pictures in the correct order to complete a flow diagram. Pupils peer or self-assess their work using red/green pens.
**Past-paper question provided as an extra activity for higher-ability pupils - pupils answer the question in their books and peer-assess using the mark scheme**
Plenary - pupils write a text message or a tweet to their friend to tell them what they have learnt about this lesson.
All resources are included, as well as mark schemes for when pupils self/peer-assess their work.
Please leave a review with feedback :) thanks!
This is a extensive 15 slide ppt, covering the New AQA AS Biology syllabus. It has easy to understand text, with full scientific terminology, colourful pictures and diagrams to aid learning.
It includes, cell division, mitosis, stages of cell division (interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase), hoe to calculate time taken in each stage of mitosis, cancer, chemotherapy, radiation treatments and how they affect cell division, root tip experiment, observation of cells covering eyepiece graticules and micrometers, finishing with calculations and formula needed for the exam.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my resource and I hope you find it beneficial.
Please feel free to leave feedback and to 'follow me' so as not to miss out on future helpful resources.
Builds on knowledge of mitosis and meiosis from GCSE. Introduces the cell cycle and the different steps in mitosis. Designed to be used for the OCR AS Biology course in combination with the course textbook.
A cut and stick and cloze activity aimed at A level students.
The activity is designed so that students can learn and identify the key stages of mitosis and describe what happens in each of the main stages. The cloze activity allows students to become more familiar with the key terminology associated with this topic.
This activity could also be used for able GCSE students.
This activity can be completed by students independently as all instructions are given on the sheets. Ideal for both teaching the topic and also as a revision aide.
A completed answer sheet is provided for the teacher.
Buy the mitosis and meiosis activity packs together and get the posters for free.
The two activities on mitosis and mitosis are designed so that students can learn and identify the key stages and describe what happens in each stage for the two types of cell division.
The close activity included helps students to become more familiar with the key words used in the cell division topic.
Both activities can be completed by the students independently as the instructions are given on the sheets.
These activity packs are ideal for both teaching the topic and also as a revision aide for the students.
The posters are great for display around the classroom or to give to pupils for revision.
All sheets are provided in an A3 or A4 format. I would recommend printing the meiosis activity and poster on A3 paper if possible. This keeps all the stages of meiosis on one page, making it easier for students to compare the two different stages of meiosis with one another.
Cell division (mitosis) lesson created in accordance to the NEW AQA Specification (9-1). Designed for a higher ability separates class, although content can be adjusted to suit any ability. Includes: slide animations, practice questions with answers on slides and worksheet.
AQA spec link: 188.8.131.52 & 184.108.40.206
Relevant chapter: B2 Cell division. AQA Biology third edition textbook-Page 26-27
Specification requires students to know the following;
The nucleus of a cell contains chromosomes made of DNA molecules. Each chromosome carries a large number of genes. In body cells the chromosomes are normally found in pairs.
Cells divide in a series of stages called the cell cycle. Students should be able to describe the stages of the cell cycle, including mitosis. During the cell cycle the genetic material is doubled and then divided
into two identical cells. Before a cell can divide it needs to grow and increase the number of
sub-cellular structures such as ribosomes and mitochondria. The DNA replicates to form two copies of each chromosome.
In mitosis one set of chromosomes is pulled to each end of the cell and the nucleus divides.
Finally the cytoplasm and cell membranes divide to form two identical cells.
Students need to understand the three overall stages of the cell cycle but do not need to know the different phases of the mitosis stage.
Cell division by mitosis is important in the growth and development of multi-cellular organisms.
Students should be able to recognise and describe situations in given contexts where mitosis is occurring.
Mitosis Cootie Catchers/ Fortune Tellers: are a great way for students to have fun while learning about each phase of mitosis and other important terms. These cootie catchers contain the following terms:
Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase, Centrioles,
DNA, Chromosome, Spindle Fibers
These mitosis cootie catchers come in color and black & white, and also come with a version where students can add their own definitions. All of this totals 6 pages which has students identifying vocabulary terms about Mitosis (with pictures) based from the definition.

This is a hands on activity where students will be manipulating the organelles found in a cell during each phase of the cell cycle: Interphase, Mitosis, and Cytokinesis.
You will receive a PDF version of the Mitosis Manipulative Activity.
Students will be able to identify the events that take place during the cell cycle.
Each page is made to
~~Print and attach to Velcro/magnets to hang on a board for visual representation of the cell cycle.
~~Can be manipulated on a table/desk for students to demonstrate the steps of the cell cycle.
This can be individual student work, teacher-led, or group/station work.
This set is based on a cell with 4 chromosomes.
