Why Lesson Planet?
Donate old socks for science! Young biologists model mitosis and meiosis, using socks as chromosomes and a balloon as a nucleus. 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 instructional activity even more engaging by having small groups bring their own socks to class and work together to create these models
- Innovative and fun for beginning and advanced learners
- Hands-on approach is a helpful way to reinforce concepts that usually require memorization
