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.
7th - 8th Science
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.
7th - 12th Science
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.
9th - 12th Science
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.
10th - 12th Science
DNA, Genes, and Chromosomes
Young scholars 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.
9th - 10th Science
Students plant seeds in order to investigate and explore the questions: "How do seed companies develop varieties of plants?" and "What is the ideal plant?" Students will study related vocabulary and sketch seeds as they emerge. Students then complete a scientific worksheet related to cause and effect of the seeds and their growth.

Mitosis, Meiosis and Sexual Reproduction
Sal from the Khan Academy draws an example of sexual reproduction and the chromosomes that come together from each gamete. Mitosis is also explained about halfway through the video, eventually showing differentiation and meiosis. Give your learners a cyclical view of how mitosis and meiosis work to create a new person!
18 mins 7th - 12th Science
These two pages cover the gamut of topics regarding reproduction and DNA replication. Structures, processes, functions, and reasons for them are tested here. The questions are mostly multiple choice, but there are also a few short-answer questions requiring the application of knowledge
9th - 12th Science
Mitosis Cookies Activity
This exercise implores biology learners to think through the phases of mitosis, and gives them a sweet snack at the end! They begin by twisting apart creme-filled cookies and using the icing as a cytoplasm, if you will. Colored candy sprinkles make up chromosome pairs, which learners line up on the icing to model where they appear in each phase.
7th - 12th Science
Biology: Genetics and Heredity
Seventh graders explore the connection between genetics and heredity by examining the cellular structure. Among the numerous activities to engage students are drawing DNA molecules, vocabulary puzzle sheets, and predicting possible offspring combinations by discovering the Punnett Squares to predict ratios for inherited traits.
