Young scholars 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.
Students explore genetics, chromosomes and DNA.  In this genetics lesson students design a chromosome and identify a family tree through genetics. 
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.
Students read about the X and Y chromosomes in humans and complete a worksheet.
Students investigate DNA by doing a hands on activity.  In this activity lesson students participate in a lab that allows to explore DNA and chromosomes. 
Learners 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.
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. 
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!
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.
Young scholars examine chromosomes. In this chromosome lesson, students research chromosomes and chromosome mutations. Young scholars discover diseases caused by chromosome mutation and analyze symptoms to determine the chromosome mutation.
Learners 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.
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.
Learners 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.
Students review the structure and function of DNA, genes, and chromosomes and are engaged by a demonstration illustrating the relative size of DNA, genes and chromosomes. They also describe through analogy and model the structure and function of DNA, genes, and chromosomes.
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. 
High schoolers examine the X and Y chromosomes. In this research lesson, students use the 5E lesson model as they read articles about human chromosomes then discuss their findings and opinions.
In this chromosomes worksheet, students compare the chromosome numbers for different animals and complete 2 graphic organizers with this information. Students compare autosomes and sex chromosomes. This worksheet has 3 graphic organizers, 6 fill in the blank, and 5 short answer questions.
Ninth graders extract DNA from their cheek cells. In this biology lesson, 9th graders match chromosomes by size and banding patterns using an interactive website. They explain what a karyotype is.
