My students, aged eleven to thirteen, come from all socio-economic backgrounds. They love learning about science and enjoy different activities from building cell models to using thinking apps on iPads to coloring cells and organelles.
My students need twistable colored pencils to create hand-held study guides called foldables that help them learn cell division and cell processes.
The twistable colored pencils are of great quality and do not require any sharpening. The students love that when the color is low, they merely twist up and the pencil is like new.
My seventh-grade students use a variety of learning techniques and platforms. Subjects covered include cells, microscopes, genetics, evolution, and the human body.
In order to reach all my students, I use lectures, books, Chromebooks, iPads, Google slideshows, and arts and crafts.
One activity we do in our life science class is creating a paper foldable comparing mitosis to meiosis. Students write the steps of mitosis, a description of each step, and create a color hand-drawn picture of each step. They do the same for meiosis. The colored pencil twistables allow the students to color the cell and chromosomes different colors in order to expedite the learning of these two types of cell division.
