Three types of cell reproduction; Binary Fission and Reproduction involving Mitosis or Meiosis. In the context of reproduction of living cells, "cell growth" refers to the "growth in cell numbers by means of cell reproduction." During cell reproduction one cell (the "parental" cell) divides to produce daughter cells. In other contexts, "cell growth" refers to increases in cell size. Photo credit: John Schmidt
meiosis - cell division necessary for sexual reproduction in eukaryotes, such as animals, plants and fungi. The number of sets of chromosomes in the cell undergoing meiosis is reduced to half the original number, typically from two sets (diploid) to one set (haploid). The cells produced by meiosis are either gametes (the usual case in animals) or otherwise usually spores from which gametes are ultimately produced (the case in land plants).
This set of 80 Cell Task Cards with editable template is a fun and effective way for student to review cell structures and functions. These task cards will support individual review (especially for early finishers) as well as promote student centered collaborative learning that will keep students engaged while reinforcing concepts at the same time. The game board will turn the the task cards into a fun review game that will have your students asking for more!
