Meiosis Simulation Lab Investigation


A fun & easy way to learn about the formation of sex cells.

Vividly simulate meiosis, the division of the cell nucleus to produce sex cells, using colored pop beads. Students model each stage of the process by constructing pop bead chromosomes to learn about such important concepts as cell division, crossing over, genetic recombination, chromosomal aberration and much more!

Your students will:  understand the role chromosomes play in the process of reproduction;  simulate the phases of Meiosis I and II and the phenomenon of "crossingiover";  demonstrate how sexual reproduction produces genetic diversity and compare and contrast the process of mitosis and meiosis.

Class size - 40 students.
