Product Details

Cell division takes center stage! Show cell division on a grand scale by manipulating large magnetic models. Demonstrate chromosome activity in each mitotic phase to your entire classroom. Interactive model physically shows how chromosomes move and separate to form two daughter cells. Students form a long-lasting connection of mitosis as a living process instead of a series of steps to be memorized. Includes a magnetic chromosome sheet of three reusable chromosome magnets and an overhead color transparency picturing cells in the various stages of mitosis.

Performance Expectations

MS-LS1-1. Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells; either one cell or many different numbers and types of cells
MS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function.
HS-LS1-4. Use a model to illustrate the role of cellular division (mitosis) and differentiation in producing and maintaining complex organisms.
