Reflection: Coherence Micro-Structures of Animals - What's In A Cell? - Section 2: Guided Instruction


Overall this lesson is a fairly short one. However, I choose not to do a different activity after the cell structure naming as it can become overwhelming. It is better to have this as a short lesson and do hands-on activities that start the next day.

In order to keep the lesson pace going, I may not wait for all student to be done writing notes, but I give them time to at least start. I provide a copy of the PowerPoint for students to use to complete the flap book during work time later in the day.
