Chromosome Models- Karyotyping
Create your own karyotypes with clay in a kinesthetic genome activity. This tactile experience was created for visually impaired pupils, but can be used for all hands-on learners who are beginning to study chromosomes. The preparation directions are intended for teachers of the visually impaired, so adjust as needed for your classes. A reading activity is referenced and so is ddiscussion, but no reading is included, and the discussion information is quite limited.
Chromosomes and Genetic Mapping
Students are introduced to mapping by crossover frequency. Genes travel as packaged trains on chromosomes. They use this experiment, genetic mapping assignment, that allow students to quickly complete the assignment and yet examine the concepts of a simple map.
Sets of Chromosomes Worksheet
Biology aces define haploid and diploid, determine number of chromosomes for various cells, and then state which cells are haploid and diploid. Plenty of practice is provided by the thirty-eight questions on this assignment. You will be glad that you found it to use during your cell division unit!
Students explore genetics, chromosomes and DNA. In this genetics lesson students design a chromosome and identify a family tree through genetics.
Chromosomes and Genetic Mapping
Students create models of chromosomes using clay, coins, beads, or marbles. They complete a worksheet regarding their crossover frequencies they created with their chromosomes and gene models. They read an essay on sex chromosomes and answer the accompanying questions.
Students demonstrate mitosis as a class with pvc 'chromosomes'. In this mitosis lesson, students explore the phases of the cell cycle. They work together to demonstrate the cellular process with rope, cords, and pvc pipes.
What Can We Learn From the X Chromosome?
Students read about the X and Y chromosomes in humans and complete a worksheet.
High schoolers 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.
Sets of Chromosomes
In this chromosome activity, students answer eighteen questions about chromatids, chromosomes, types of reproduction, haploid and diploid cells and zygotes.
Biology/Genetics: Chromosomes and Diseases
Learners examine chromosomes. In this chromosome lesson, students research chromosomes and chromosome mutations. Learners discover diseases caused by chromosome mutation and analyze symptoms to determine the chromosome mutation.
Errors of Meiosis: Chromosomal Abnormalities
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.
Dragon Genetics ~ Understanding Inheritance
Juvenile geneticists will jive with this imaginative investigation of inheritance in dragons. Six pages begin with a detailed introduction to meiosis and homologous chromosome pairs. Instructions guide learners through a simulation in which they draw craft sticks marked with autosomes in order to decode the genes inherited by the baby dragon. An organized chart is provided, along with critical thinking questions and a partially drawn dragon on which learners will add the inherited traits. This is a gem of a worksheet!
Nine pages of material on inheritance make up this handout. It begins with a reading on alleles and how they can result in albinism. A chromosome modeling activity and questions follow. Junior geneticists learn to complete Punnett squares and participate in a coin toss simulation of allele pairing. They also learn about sex determination, sickle-cell anemia, and pedigree analysis. This resource provides a variety of activities and information to support several days worth of genetics instruction.
Chromosomes, DNA, and Genes-Roadmap To Understanding The Foundation Of Genetics
Students investigate DNA by doing a hands on activity. In this activity lesson plan students participate in a lab that allows to explore DNA and chromosomes.
The Chromosome Connection
Students evaluate the degree of chromosome similarity and difference between humans and apes. Students infer about the relationship between a human and ape based on similarities found.
The Chromosome Shuffle
Students study the processes of meiosis and mitosis. In this chromosome lesson students participate in an activity that students role play the parts of a cell then create one.
Mitosis: Chromosome Replication & Division
Students examine how cells reproduce themselves, and how chromosomes are copied and distributed. They create chromosomes using paper, yarn, string, and plastic knives, forks and spoons.
Karyotypes and Inheritance of Chromosomes
Students explore the mode of inheritance of chromosomes. Given a scenario, students use the Human Genome sheet to determine inherited chromosomes. They illustrate the difference between genotype and phenotype. Students develop a model using chromosomes.
Comparison of Human and Chimpanzee Chromosomes
Students actively engage in the careful analysis of chromosome banding patterns and identify examples of inversion in homologous chromosomes.
In this chromosomes worksheet, students complete a crossword puzzle with 33 questions about genetic mutation in chromosomes. They identify traits associated with certain genes.
