This lesson is part of the unit:
This introductory lesson motivates the unit by asking the question “What is regeneration?” Through this lesson, the unit’s driving question is introduced and examined. The lesson activities stimulate student interest in learning about what the term regeneration means by providing a series of science articles on regeneration and healing in humans and other species. Students generate questions about regeneration that will be investigated throughout the unit. Students are introduced to the idea of model organisms, which provides the rationale for studying planarians in this unit.
