Cell Division Comics

Grade 9, 30-60min

In the Cell Division Comics activity, students create short comic strips that tell the story of cell division in a creative manner. Students use abstraction to develop an analogy that still represents the scientific details they need to know about cellular division. Students brainstorm, create a quick sketch and then draw their final comic to share with their peers.
