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.
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.
The lecturer starts by emphasizing that the mitotic process is a separate mechanism to cytokinesis - the cytoplasm splitting to become 2 cells. The video continues explaining the stages of mitosis in great detail. Each stage is diagrammed and the relevant structures are labeled and explained. Your students will find this to be a valuable supplemental study tool.
A single-paged set of instructions and grading system for a mitosis project are laid out for your life science learners. (Note that the page is repeated, making this a two-page document.) Pairs of beginning biologists use clay to model the steps of cell division, taking a photograph of each, and then combining them into a claymation video. Instructions refer to Microsoft's Photo Story software, which is available via a free download, but you could also have groups also use a slide show format for presenting their project.
Seventh graders learn about cell mitosis. Students will also make their own animated example of mitosis using a digital camera, a computer with video editing software and clay.
This complete worksheet 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.
After examining the cells of an onion root tip, budding biologists analyze numbers of cells in each different phase of mitosis. They combine their counts with other students' data and then calculate the amount of time a cell might spend in each phase. A lab sheet is provided for recording data and then applying newly acquired knowledge to another scenario. A prelab worksheet is also included as part of this brilliant biology resource.
High schoolers 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.
Students are able to see onion root cells undergoing mitosis underneath a light microscope and determine the phase of mitosis the cells are in. They draw a sketch of the mitotic cells. Students explore the phases of mitosis and the cell cycle. They explore why cells undergo mitosis and how uncontrolled cell division leads to cancer.
Students discover the processes that occur during mitosis and what makes each phase different and distinct from the others as well as how each contribute to the overall process of mitosis by looking at onion root tips under a microscope.
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.
Learners discover through whole-class role play, the process of mitosis. They will all become a chromosome and demonstrate how they line up 23 to 23.
Imagine being able to control mitosis at your fingertips! With this application, imagination comes to life! 
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.
Seventh graders discuss each stage of mitosis, search Internet to find web site containing animation of mitosis, and complete PowerPoint project to present to classmates.
Students observe onion root tip mitosis and work with a partner to set up their own slide. They discuss their observations and draw the phases of mitosis.
Seventh graders review the five phases of mitosis. They then create a materials key telling which material will represent certain parts of the cells. Finally, in groups of two, 7th graders make a poster explaining each phase of mitosis.
Students identify each phase of mitosis and the main characteristics of each. Students prepare a microscope slide with onion root tip. Students observe the cell division occurring in the cells and label the mitosis phases observed.
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!
Students use many different forms of technology to create a report on mitosis. They can also make a quiz using Hyperstudio and have other students in the class see how well they do.
