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 learning exercise. Even though it addresses a specific textbook chapter, you will most likely cover identical material no matter which biology text you choose to use.
Seventh graders describe the processes involved in mitosis and meiosis. In this life science instructional activity, 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.
In this science worksheet, students answer 13 multiple-choice questions about mitosis and meiosis. For example, "Interphase is defined as..."
You will need to find diagrams of both spermatogenesis and oogenesis to display as you lecture because the mentioned PowerPoint is not included. Also, your class must have prior knowledge of meiosis prior to hearing this lecture. After they have sketched the steps of the gamete formation process, you will teach them about fertilization. Learners then draw this process as well. More than anything else, this lesson plan can serve as background information for your biology lesson.
Students investigate how cells divide during mitosis and meiosis. In this activity, students role play the different parts of the cells. They identify the function of each organelles.
Students explore the field of genetics. Through a graphing activity, students assess four common traits. They complete a Meiosis I and II charts which represent possible gametes for an individual. Students discuss phenotype and genotype traits.
These two pages cover the gamut of topics regarding reproduction and DNA replication. Structures, processes, functions, and reasons for them are tested here. The questions are mostly multiple choice, but there are also a few short-answer questions requiring the application of knowledge
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. There is a block of print referring to a missing diagram, but finding an appropriate diagram to add or removing the instructions altogether would be worth your while since the questions are quite valuable.
In this science worksheet, students answer 15 questions about mitosis and meiosis. For example, "What is a major feature of prophase in mitosis?"
Students identify the structures that actually assort independently. They are taught how gene maps are produced. Students compare the processes of mitosis and meiosis. They are shown their (mitosis and meiosis) significane to sexual and asexual reproduction.
Students study meiosis and how it leads to variation. In this genetic reproduction lesson students complete a lab activity that calculates different genetic possibilities.
Biology learners highlight the features of asexual and sexual reproduction in this life cycle worksheet. They take an in-depth look at the role of chromosomes in meiosis and the overall process of reproduction. 
High schoolers learn the processes of cell division, both somatic and sexual through lecture. They participate in an Internet lesson to strenghten their understanding of mitosis and meiosis.
For this biology worksheet, 9th graders label each of the diagrams representing the stages of meiosis. Then they describe how gametes vary from other cells in the body. Students also explain what happens during the process of fertilization.
In this meiosis phases quiz worksheet, students complete an on-line game, clicking on questions and matching answer cards and scoring 1 point per correct answer. Printable version available also.
Students create a fictional organism. In this biology lesson, students predict the traits of resulting offspring. They complete activity worksheet and discuss answers in class.
Learners discuss the stages of meiosis. In this life science lesson plan, students create an illustration of each stages. They write a short story about a character that went through meiosis.
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. This assignment covers a wide breadth of biology topics and was designed for a college level biology course. 
In this meiosis instructional activity, learners will compare chromosome numbers from different organisms, review the phases of meiosis, and learn how meiosis leads to genetic variation. This instructional activity has 14 fill in the blank, 5 matching, and 6 true or false questions.
The main objective of this activity is to illustrate the variation that results from crossing-over during prophase I of meiosis. Other sources of variation from generation to generation are: (1) independent assortment (223 possible gametes that could be formed in humans), and (2) random gamete pairing.
