All biology and life science students learn about mitosis and cell division from the typical drawings found in the textbook.  When seen under the microscope, many students will fail to make the connection between the images in the text and those seen in the microscope.  This lab will provide hands-on practice in identifying the stages of mitosis.  Further, students will compare the stages of mitosis between plant and animal cells, and learn a technique to determine how much time is spent in…

Have your students “Create a Baby” based on specific dominant or recessive traits! The Create A Baby lab can be used during any unit on genetics, all that is needed are some pennies and colored pencils. Students will “create” or draw a baby based on traits acquired through chance. This lab is very flexible as it will work for any level student from English Learner - EL - to more advanced students.  $
