Interactive and Classroom Activities for High School Biology Students - Mitosis & Meiosis
  • Jeffrey Sack says:
    The documentation provided here is an excellent laboratory activity that has students examine the different stages of mitosis and meiosis. Using prepared slides and hands-on experiences, they are guided through the different phases of cell division. This lab offers a lot of excellent activities.
  • Jeffrey Sack says:
    The activity found here is a mini lab that compares the processes of mitosis and meiosis. There are several handouts that need to be downloaded for both teacher and student use. The author also gives some suggestions for extension activities. I really like how this lab looks.
  • Jeffrey Sack says:
    This is a wonderful, albeit complicated lab activity that has students explore both mitosis and meiosis. It would be best used in an AP class, but a more advanced general biology class would also be able to handle it with modification. It is really complete in what it studies.

    Is there a way to know if your students have completely understood the concepts of mitosis and meiosis? The tips and resources presented in this article provide some good advice on how you can check for understanding. It also links to other resources that can be used to assess student learning. This is a great place to start learning about the difference between grading and assessing.

    A video that compares the two processed. This is an excellent overview of both processes and really does a wonderful job showing the similarities and differences between them.
  • Jeffrey Sack says:
    This virtual lab is designed the parallel the meiosis/mitosis lab of the Advanced Placement Biology curriculum. It is ideal for teachers who do not have the necessary equipment to carry out the activity in class.
  • Jeffrey Sack says:
    A wonderful animation that shows students the process of meiosis. This would be great to use as an introduction to the topic, asking the students what is happening at each step.
