Eighth graders are able to define meiosis. They are able to compare and contrast meiosis and mitosis. Students are able to state the phases of meiosis. They complete a K-W-L chart on meiosis and mitosis. Students talk about meiosis and sexual reproduction and give definitions.
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.
Eighth graders hypothesize if a plant with white flowers is crossed with a plant with purple flowers, what are the possible genotypes and phenotypes of the offspring. They define meiosis, compare/contrast meiosis and mitosis and state the phases of meiosis.
In this meiosis worksheet, student complete the blanks describing the process of meiosis. Students draw a diagram of homologous chromosomes.
This complete activity includes short answer and multiple choice questions as well as a Venn diagram for comparing and contrasting mitosis with meiosis. Separate teachers' instructions are supplied. This could be used as homework and is suitable for any high school general biology course.
Students construct and manipulate models of mitosis and meiosis and compare/contrast them. They create the models using index cards and yarn, interpret diagrams and photographs, and summarize written descriptions.
Learners identify the differences between the processes of mitosis and meiosis and explain how meiosis generates new combinations for natural selection. They illustrate the processes by square dancing.
Students identify synapsis as the key event in meiosis. They explain how synapsis leads to the formation of haploid gametes. Exploration of the differences between the processes of mitosis and meiosis occur. In accordance, explanations on how meiosis generates new combinations for natural selection.
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. It would be helpful in preparing them for a quiz on cell division concepts.
An explanatory introduction to genes opens the worksheet 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. They repeat these activities for meiosis and for the fertilization process. Finally, they read about karyotypes and chromosomal abnormalities. The handout is informative, but the lab activities are not engaging.
Young scholars compare and contrast the two types of cell divisions namely meiosis and mitosis. In this biology lesson, students create chromosome models. They identify the different stages of cell division.
Student list the steps of mitosis with a brief definition of each stage. Then they begin their study of meiosis. They practice placing the stages of meiosis in order using flashcards depicting the Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, and Telophase.
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. If you  have the laboratory equipment and computer software required to carry out this lesson plan, it is sure to produce educated cell biologists!
In this meiosis learning exercise, learners fill in the blank that describes the process of meiosis. Students also draw the process of meiosis.
In this biology word search worksheet, students search for 24 words related to the cell cycle and meiosis. They check off the words in a word bank that is located at the bottom of the page.
High schoolers model the different stages of meiosis. In this biology lesson, students explain the elements of meiosis that add variation to population. They share their models in class.
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!
For this meiosis worksheet, students use online animations of the process to answer 8 questions and write their observations.
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.
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!
