Product Details

Having trouble explaining the difference between mitosis and meiosis? Stop working so hard. Let your students model the two processes with these hands-on chromosome simulation materials. The unique chromosome models with magnetic centromeres and pop bead arms allow students to easily visualize and compare the two processes. The chromosome models are built by students and can be physically manipulated through the various stages of the cell cycle on their tabletop. With this kit, chromosomes and their behaviors will be easily understood by the students. Use the models later for a practical lab quiz.

Includes centrioles, magnetic centromeres, pop beads and complete background and instructions.

Performance Expectations

MS-LS3-2. Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation.
HS-LS1-4. Use a model to illustrate the role of cellular division (mitosis) and differentiation in producing and maintaining complex organisms.
