Our Asexual Reproduction lesson plan introduces the different types of asexual reproduction and includes a brief comparison to sexual reproduction. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to create cards with lesson terms and definitions on them and take turns matching the term cards to their definitions in order to practice using these words. Students are also asked to fill in the blanks in a provided paragraph about asexual reproduction with the correct terms or phrases and write out the differences between mitosis and meiosis.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define asexual reproduction, identify the different types, and explain the process mitosis.
