Reflection: Debate Cells: The Basic Building Blocks of Living Things - Section 2: Engage


One of the great parts of this lesson was the invisible cell activity.  This formative assessment which I used to asses student prior knowledge created a debate amongst students that I wasn't expecting.  Students were really passionate about what the order of the objects should be.  The next time I teach this lesson I will allow more time for discussion since it was a great teaching and learning opportunity.
