Students 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.
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.
After viewing these concise summaries of the common chromosome abnormalities that cause disorders, students' understanding of genetic errors will be much better. This presentation has clear diagrams to accompany the explanations. The slides have information about the genetic problems, but not many details about the disorders themselves.
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.
