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.

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.

Meiosis Starts With?
How do you fill in the blanks about meiosis? With this handout! Most of the blanks have a letter filled in to give learners a hint. This resource is a good way for young biologists to ensure they have learned all the necessary vocabulary surrounding meiosis.

Turkeys in the Cell--The Meiosis Square Dance
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.

Dragon Genetics ~ Independent Assortment and Genetic Linkage
Imagine a pair of dragons that produce offspring and determine the percentage of the hatchlings have wings and large antlers. This fantastic activity draws genetics learners in, introduces them to alleles, meiosis, phenotypes, genotypes, and teaches them how to use Punnett squares.

Mitosis, Meiosis and Sexual Reproduction
This video assumes certain knowledge of how variation is introduced and that sexual reproduction results in a combinations of DNA from the parents. Important vocabulary is introduced and defined. There are also examples of gametes, zygotes and the different types of cells and structures involved on an introductory level.

Cell Cycle, Mitosis and Meiosis
Seventh graders describe the processes involved in mitosis and meiosis. In this life science lesson, 7th graders create chromosome models using strings and beads. They play a jeopardy team game at the end of the unit to review concepts learned.

Biology Lab - Mitosis and Meiosis
Paul Anderson gives an explanation of how to conduct a biology lab to see mitosis and meiosis. This clip is directed at teachers and shows how to use an onion root and the fungus sordaria to count up the phases and draw a cell cycle pie chart.

Intersections of Cell Division
Students listen to a lecture covering the process of going from one cell to two cells. Using the textbook, students differentiate between meiosis I and Meiosis II. Students work in pairs to create one stage using pipe cleaners, sequins, candy, and construction paper.

Reading Guide & Worksheet - Chromosomes & Cell Division
Giving short answers, young biologists review the processes of mitosis and meiosis. They also explain what causes some of the more common genetic disorders. Written as a reading guide, this worksheet is likely to line up with any biology textbook chapter on cell division.

Meiosis and Sexual Reproduction
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.
