Cell, Socks, and Sex
Using old socks as chromosomes and a balloon as a nucleus, make your lesson on mitosis and meiosis "pop!" This ingenious idea for modeling cell division will be more memorable to your young biologists than any set of diagrams, so don't throw those worn-out socks away!

Chromosomes, Chromatids, Chromatin, etc.
See how the strands of DNA separate and become a template for a replica to be incorporated in a new cell! The microbiology and biochemistry of the process is detailed. This lecture refers to the concepts of transcription and translation when making a protein.

AP: Chapter 15: The Chromosomal Basis of Inheritance
AP biology course-takers peer into the workings of inheritance with this worksheet. They examine the Chromosomal Theory of Inheritance, Morgan's fruit fly experimentation, and sex-linked genetic traits. Vocabulary definitions and critical-thinking questions are included in this four-page comprehensive assignment.

The Human Genotype
Six different chromosome activites introduce biology aces to heredity, chromosomal abnormalities, sex-linked traits, and the human genome. The hands-on activites are fairly simple for the teacher to prepare and will prove to be both educational and engaging.

Dragon Genetics ~ Independent Assortment and Genetic Linkage
Imagine a pair of dragons that produce offspring and determine the percentage of the hatchlings have wings and large antlers. This fantastic activity draws genetics learners in, introduces them to alleles, meiosis, phenotypes, genotypes, and teaches them how to use Punnett squares.

Phases of Mitosis
The lecturer starts by emphasizing that the mitotic process is a separate mechanism to cytokinesis - the cytoplasm splitting to become 2 cells. The video continues explaining the stages of mitosis in great detail. Each stage is diagrammed and the relevant structures are labeled and explained.

Recombination and Pedigrees
Biology aces answer four questions about genetic recombination and nine questions about pedigrees. This worksheet is very focused on these two topics. Most of the pedigree questions relate to the genetic disorders, Alkaptonuria and hemophilia.

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.

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.

Chromosomal Mutations - When Good Meiosis Goes Bad
After teaching about the process of meiosis, use this presentation to inform your biology buffs of problems that can possibly occur. Gene mutation is mentioned as a review, and then different forms of chromosome mutation are explored: nondisjunction, deletion, inversion, duplication, and translocation.

Students use a karyotype to determine characteristics of the "baby" created in the lab activity. In this karyotyping lesson plan, students analyze the traits and characteristics that can be determined from a karyotype such as the sex of the baby and particular traits identified by letters on the karyotype.

Heredity Mix 'n Match
Students randomly select jelly beans that represent genes for several human traits such as tongue-rolling ability and eye color. Then, working in pairs (preferably of mixed gender), students randomly choose new pairs of jelly beans from those corresponding to their own genotypes.

The Human Genome Project
Students complete an interactive Internet activity simulating the sequencing of DNA. In this genetics lesson, students use a virtual activity to act as scientists sequencing chromosomal DNA bases. They learn about the race to sequence the genome and explore sequenced DNA to learn about its functions.

Mitosis, Meiosis, and Fertilization
An explanatory introduction to genes opens the learning exercise for young geneticists. Then, through diagrams and reading passages, mitosis is explained. This is just a general explanation, as the phases of mitosis are not mentioned. Pupils answer a few fill-in-the-blank questions and then use large objects and their arms to model mitosis.

Comparing Mitosis and Meiosis
Take a critical thinking approach to comparing mitosis and meiosis with this set of questions. Budding biologists describe chromatids and homologous chromosomes. they identify whether different processes occur during mitosis, meiosis, or both.

The Face Lab - An Introduction to Genetics
Simulate the passing of genetic traits with this worksheet. Working with a partner, pupils flip a coin to determine characteristics: gender, face shape, chin features, hair patterns and color, eye spacing, and more. A data chart is provided for them to keep track of results.

Three steps are needed to extract DNA from learners' inner cheek cells. The procedure and reasons for each step are explained. As enzymes work on the cells, a series of questions are answered regarding the structure of the DNA molecule. As the third step is in process, questions about DNA replication are also addressed.
