Students model the different stages of meiosis. In this biology lesson plan, students explain the elements of meiosis that add variation to population. They share their models in class.
In this meiosis worksheet, students use online animations of the process to answer 8 questions and write their observations.
Complement your lesson on genetic material and cell replication with this attractive and well-rounded presentation.  The many images provide good examples of the stages of meiosis. It will also enhance understanding of the progression.
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!
Students review the main stages of mitosis. They view an overhead comparing the process of mitosis to meiosis. Students use pre-cut pictures of each stage of meiosis and create cards for use in creating a flip book. Students name ways meiosis is different from mitosis.
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. 
There are two tables on this biology handout. The first lists questions and leaves one open column to answer them for mitosis and another for meiosis. The second is a true-or-false exercise in which four statements are made about cell division. Learners must tell if each statement is true or false for both of the processes. This could be used as a review homework or quiz in your high school or college level introductory biology course.
Using yarn and chenille stems, lab groups collaborate to model mitosis and meiosis. Brief background information and a vaguely written procedure comprise this outline. More instruction needs to be provided to learners about cell division before they can carry out the activity. If you provide more of the materials, they can make a model of each stage and mount it on a poster so that you can assess later rather than walking through the class in an attempt to hear each individuals' explanation.
For this meiosis worksheet, students review diploid and haploid cells and the main purpose of meiosis. This worksheet has 1 true or false and 4 multiple choice questions.
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. The exercises also illustrate the law of independent assortment and linked genes. The handout is ten pages long and will take days to work through, but it will definitely keep learners engaged!
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. An organized chart is provided, along with critical thinking questions and a partially drawn dragon on which learners will add the inherited traits. This is a gem of a worksheet!
Fill- in-the-blank, labeling, and short answer questions make up this well-written cell division instructional activity. Neat diagrams of chromosomes and dividing cells are included. Junior biologists show what they know about reproduction, meiosis, fertilization, karyotypes, and genetic variation. Teachers' instructions with accommodations for special needs are provided. This is definitely a instructional activity that you will want to add to your collection of homework assignments or assessments.
Tenth graders work in teams to order events of DNA transcription and translation protein synthesis. In the second activity, they put the steps of mitosis and meiosis in order using a concept map poster. They use modeling clay to create models of cells undergoing these changes. In the third activity, 10th graders create Punnett squares, and participate in an interactive lecture on genes, alleles, traits and geno/pheno types.
Students study the cell cycle and see the differences between mitosis and meiosis.  In this cell reproduction instructional activity students complete several activities. 
Learners investigate how traits are passed from parents to offspring via meiosis and fertilization. They recognize that the combination of alleles forming a gamete is random.
In this genetics worksheet, students answer 42 questions about meiosis and sexual life cycles, Mendel's Laws of Inheritance, chromosomes and protein synthesis.
Students are introduced to genetics along with genetic diseases and heredity. In groups, they complete a Punnett Square to determine the dominant and recessive genes. After viewing diagrams, they identify the characteristics of DNA and demonstrate the processes of Meiosis and Mitosis. To end the lesson, they discover the factors that cause genes to mutate.
In this biology review worksheet, students complete 50 multiple choice questions on the stages of mitosis and meiosis. They compare and contrast the two.
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! Make the lesson even more engaging by having small groups  bring their own socks to class and work together to create these models.
Students describe the different stages of cell division and reproduction. In this biology lesson, students discuss meiosis and the different stages. They differentiate between mitosis and meiosis.
