In this WebQuest, you will learn about the cell cycle and how it is involved in everyday life of cells. You will learn about all the different parts of the cell cycle and key characteristics of these phases. Your job as a group is to research a type of cancer of your choice. Since cancer is rapidly dividing cells, it gives you a real life example to study the cell cycle. In your project, you will make a visual aid to present to the class. The visual aid should include facts about the cancer, symptoms, death rate, occurrence, and any interesting facts about the cancer of your groups choice.
