Young scholars explore chromosome karyotyping. In this chromosome karyotyping lesson plan, students use a chromosome kit to explore chromosome syndromes and disorders. They also produce a large model of a cell with chromosome to simulate cell division, the stages of cell division and the structures of the chromosomes.
Students investigate the human genome. In this science lesson, students identify the different genes and chromosomes that make up the human body. They create a map of the different chromosomes.
In this biology worksheet, 9th graders describe whether the father or mother is affected by a sex-linked disorder and why. Then they name two genetic disorders that are caused by a recessive allele on the X-chromosome. Students also name two genetic disorders that are homozygous recessive.
In this genetic disorders worksheet, high schoolers complete punnett squares for six different human genetic disorders. They predict the outcome of the offspring including the phenotypes and genotypes of each.
High schoolers explain how karyotyping is used to diagnose specific genetic disorders. They use karyotypes to make observations and analyze chromosomal errors. This activity can be completed online or without computer access.
Students construct and manipulate models of mitosis and meiosis and compare/contrast them. They create the models using index cards and yarn, interpret diagrams and photographs, and summarize written descriptions.
Assign these 50 questions to your biology class as a review of cell division. Learners will address the cell cycle, cancer cells, cytokinesis, mitosis, meiosis, gene and chromosomal mutations, and karyotypes. The format is user-friendly, leaving room for pupils to write their answers beneath each question. It would be helpful in preparing them for a quiz on cell division concepts.
Students in an alternative school setting for pregnant teens examine various facets of pregnancy including prenatal and postpartum testing, genetic influences, and additional risk factors. Through videos, hands-on activities, and small group discussions, they gain insights into the genetics of human development, birth defects, and other related topics. Activities include: constructing cell models and creating pregnancy timelines.
High schoolers identify chromosome pairs based upon band patterns and location of centromere. They order chromosome pairs based upon size. Students differentiate normal karyotypes from abnormal karyotypes. They correctly record karyotype information using correct notation.
Break down cell division for your biology classes with this resource. Scholars differentiate between mitosis and meiosis, draw chromatids, and explain a few chromosomal disorders. This can likely be used as a chapter review or a note-taking guide during your lecture.
