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.

Students comprehend that karyotyping is a process in which chromosomes are cut from an enlarged picture and arranged in decreasing order of size. The cells to be viewed are first chemically treated to increase the number of dividing white blood cells and then treated with colchicines to stop mitotic division during anaphase.

Students explore chromosome karyotyping. For 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.

Genetic Variation Worksheet
Fill- in-the-blank, labeling, and short answer questions make up this well-written cell division worksheet. Neat diagrams of chromosomes and dividing cells are included. Junior biologists show what they know about reproduction, meiosis, fertilization, karyotypes, and genetic variation.

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.

What is the purpose of Karyotyping?
High schoolers explain how karyotyping is used to diagnose specific genetic disorders. They use karyotypes to make observations and analyze chromosomal errors. This activity can be completed online or without computer access.

Students study karyotyping, which is a process in which chromosomes are cut out from an enlarged picture and arranged in decreasing order of size. They use a template to arrange and glue chromosomes to data sheet, indicate sample code, chromosome abnormality and sex of sample.

Mitosis, Meiosis, and Fertilization
An explanatory introduction to genes opens the activity 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.

Genetics, Rules, and Disorders
What you will find in this collection of slides is a comprehensive introduction to genetics. It is technically three separate slide shows: the first on general genetics concepts, the second on rules of inheritance, and the third on genetic disorders.

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.

"More Mutations" has more quality packed into one worksheet than most. Junior geneticists are queried about different types of mutations, mutagens, changes in DNA sequences, and more. Space is provided for them to write their answers right on the page.

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.

Students identify chromosome pairs based upon band patterns and location of centromere. They order chromosome pairs based upon size. Students differentiate normal karyotypes from abnormal karyotypes. They correctly record karyotype information using correct notation.

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.
