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.

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.

Cell Cycle, Mitosis, Meiosis, and Mutations Review
Assign these 50 questions to your biology class as a review of cell division. Learners will address the cell cycle, cancer cells, cytokinesis, mitosis, meiosis, gene and chromosomal mutations, and karyotypes. The format is user-friendly, leaving room for pupils to write their answers beneath each question.

Learning Sequence Item: Mitosis and Meiosis
Investigate the ins and outs of cell division with this comprehensive set of activities. Detailed instructions for six different activities and your choice of eight different creative assessments can be found within this resource. By completing these lessons, your young biologists will have a well-rounded understanding of mitosis and meiosis.

Raven Chapter 12 Guided Notes: Sexual Reproduction & Meiosis
Young biologists define reproduction vocabulary terms, answer critical-thinking questions, label a diagram of the human life cycle, and complete a chart comparing mitosis to meiosis. This is a well-balanced worksheet. Even though it addresses a specific textbook chapter, you will most likely cover identical material no matter which biology text you choose to use.

Cell Cycle, Mitosis and Meiosis
A helpful flow chart demonstrates the difference between mitosis and meiosis on Paul Andersen's Smart Board. Time lapse videos included show mitosis and cytokinesis. Diagrams are used to portray the cell cycle. Clearly see the stages of mitosis and meiosis with this video!

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!

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 with Meiosis
Life science learners view an online animated mini textbook comparing two types of cell division. Working in groups, they use a digital microscope to capture images of cells in different stages of mitosis and meiosis. Then they create an informational brochure for each process.

Mitosis and Meiosis Project
Life science class members can choose among five projects to demonstrate thier understanding of both mitosis and meiosis. They may write a newspaper article, poem/song, or children's book, or they can construct a model or poster demonstrating differences and similarities between the two cell processes.

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.

Mitosis and Meiosis Simulation
Paul Andersen uses beads to demonstrate mitosis and meiosis. He explains the differences between the two and physically moves the beads around to represent the pulling apart of chromosomes and duplication. Get a clear understanding of the differences between mitosis and meiosis by watching this video.

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!

Reebops a Model "Organism" for Teaching Genetics Concepts
Reebops are cute, marshmallow-based creatures that can be used to teach inheritance. Beginning biologists draw strips of paper that represent chromosomes from two envelopes, one for the father, and one for the mother. Each parent contributes an allelle to help determine the traits for the baby reebop.

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.

7.014 Problem Set 5
Question one analyzes metabolic processes such as ATP synthesis and aerobic respiration. The second question is a study of a phytoplankton community, focusing on biosynthesis. The third requires the interpretation of an energy flow diagram and the fourth is a look at meiosis in plants.

Photos of the meiotic process and characteristics of each phase are contained in this collection of slides. The photos, however, are of low resolution and would be best viewed on a smaller screen. Have your biology learners watch this as homework, and then have them come to the laboratory to view slides of actual cells in meiosis under a microscope.
