Why Lesson Planet?
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.
