Chromosome Simulation Lab Investigation

Chromosome Simulation Lab Investigation



Model each phase of mitosis and meiosis using hands-on manipulatives.

Your students can use this supplemental investigation to model each phase of meiosis by constructing pop bead chromosomes to learn about such important concepts as nuclear division, crossing over, genetic recombination, independent assortment, chromosomal aberration and much more.

In addition, they'll also use the model chromosomes they construct to simulate each phase of mitosis. In the process, they'll gain a better understanding of the differences between meiosis and mitosis.

Class size - 40 students.
