If you are looking for video tutorials for your students to use to reinforce concepts, or even explore new concepts, Khan Academy has TONS of videos for science (and math) and they are FREE.
For example, here is a detailed video about Mitosis, Meiosis, and Sexual Reproduction:

3 domains or 6 kingdoms – which do you emphasize in your life science class? What activities or lesson plans do you use for this topic? Would love to hear from you and bounce ideas. Thanks!
In September, I will be teaching one 7th grade life science class in addition to my 5th grade classes. I am really excited about diving back into life science , it has been many years since I last taught this class. So I will spend the summer looking for/making new resources, materials, lessons, activities, links, ppts, and handouts to use with my class.
I will be one of 3 teachers: Mr. M will teach three 6th grade classes and one 7th, Mr. D will teach three 8th grade classes and one 7th, while I teach three 5th grade classes and one 7th. We will team teach so all 3 of us cover the same topics/lessons each cycle.
7th grade life science meets 4 days out of a 6 day cycle, with each class approximately 50 minutes long. The topics we will cover are:
- What is life/6 kingdoms (briefly)
- The Cell
- Skeletal/Muscular/Integumentary Systems
- Nervous System
