Back to School Science Activities for Middle School
For many middle school science students, this will be their first year of having science as a stand-alone class. Additionally, many middle schools are comprised of students coming from several different elementary schools. You can use these Back-to-School activities to help students practice the expectations of a science class, plus learn about each other.
This is a good way for students to draw the steps of mitosis or meiosis and explain it in detail. I like this method of drawing the steps because it's more than just filling in a chart or "finishing" an already drawn picture on a worksheet. - Morgan Schubert
Cell Bingo: This is a bingo game that I created for my middle school science students to review key vocabulary from our cell parts unit. Students fill their card with any words from the list and I call out the definition. If they know the definition and have the word on their card, they mark it.
