Product Details

Make meiosis memorable using large-scale magnets! Instead of struggling to tell which chromosome is which from one stage to the next, magnetic chromosomes allow students to clearly see how each chromosome moves and changes. Follow the magnetic chromosomes through meiosis I and II as they cross over, separate homologous pairs, and form two haploid daughter cells. Kit contains all reusable materials including 32 red magnets, 32 blue magnets, 8 black magnets, and useful background information.

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.
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-LS3-2. Make and defend a claim based on evidence that inheritable genetic variations may result from (1) new genetic combinations through meiosis, (2) viable errors occurring during replication, and/or (3) mutations caused by environmental factors.
